The Harris Campaign Shuffle (Part 3)



Those reports that of another major staff shakeup that the Katherine Harris campaign called false yesterday today turn out to be true: "Congresswoman Katherine Harris announced today that she has accepted the resignations of five staff members; Glenn Hodas, Pat Thomas, John Byers, Brian Brooks, and Stephen Gately.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Glenn Hodas, Pat Thomas and the other departing staff members. I appreciate their hard work and service on my behalf. I wish each of them the very best in their future endeavors,” stated Congresswoman Katherine Harris. The campaign team is aggressively moving forward. Top advisors in the areas of media, fund-raising in Washington D.C. and Florida, and poll assessment remain actively involved and committed to defeating Bill Nelson."

She said Eddy Mehnert will be Southwest Field Director, and Jason Wetherington will be new Southeast Field Director. "The campaign will soon announce senior level campaign staff."
