I had a long telephone conversation withlast night. I had called to confirm the rumors I’d been hearing about the resignation of her campaign manager, but we ended up talking about politics for a bit. I was very favorably impressed with her command of the issues and her political acumen. Here’s the release they put out about her former campaign manager:
St. Paul, MN – Sue Jeffers, the recently announced Republican candidate for governor, accepted the resignation of her campaign manager today. Dan Coleman submitted his letter of resignation, citing health concerns and philosophical differences as his reasons for departing.
“[This] in no way diminishes my admiration for you and what you are trying to achieve,” he said.
“My staff and I wish Dan a speedy recovery, and wish him well in his future endeavors. His duties will be assumed by my capable staff,” Jeffers said of Coleman’s departure.
I know several members of her key campaign team and have full confidence in their ability to keep things running while they look for a suitable replacement for Coleman.
