Rasoul Seeks New Campaign Manager - Again

I got wind that 6th District Democrat Congressional candidate Sam Rasoul is looking for a new campaign manager. This would be his third. He posted an ad on a Democrat job site last week.

I know that campaign staff come and go, but 3 managers in one race is a bit more than normal. His first manager, Rick Howell, quite after a short time on the job and went on to support Rasoul's primary opponent.

It certainly begs the question--why is Rasoul going through so many managers and will the trend continue? An ever changing staff will be more detrimental as the campaign heats up this fall.

Maybe the campaign manager quit from gettin tried of trying to handle Sam's father all of the time. Seriously, that man is a giant liability, and I dont want a ranting, raving lunatic as my representative's father.

Rick Howell has made his feelings about Sam Rasoul all too clear.

Any idea about Howell's feelings now that Rasoul is the nominee? He wrote this when Richardson was still in the race.

I think Sam has done a good job so far; as far as new campaign manager that is new news to me, I have done some field work/coordination for Sam in the past and I think my experience overall was pretty pleasant, nothing like this blogger commenting on Sam's father, like he is Osama Bin Laden or something, but that probaly is how you want everybody to appear who is not just like you.-toast to stupidity!

Oo, apologies for not noticing the Osama comment earlier... Kim, you made the analogy, not I. I said the man was nuts, due to his verbal diarreha and inability to shut up and stop being ridiuclous during his son's very uphill battle.

You want to start throwing around terrorism analogies? Feel free... its your candidate, not mine.

Rick Howell always could pick a winner.
