Staffin' on up
Krusty reports this morning something we've been hearing around the watercooler at CCHQ for a couple weeks now. Gentry Collins, former ED of the Republican Party of Iowa and campaign manager for Doug Gross' failed Gubernatorial campaign will be taking the reins for Governor Romney here in Iowa. This is a very good move by team Romney as Collins is well respected in Iowa GOP circles. Krusty also mentions the addition of Capitol Resources that we told you about yesterday.
Romney has also bulked up his field staff with the addition of a few folks who worked with the Legislative Majority Fund this cycle. This isn't suprising given their connection to House Minority Leader Christopher Rants- a key Romney supporter.
- Governor Huckabee has begun staffing up in New Hampshire asking the former Chairman of the Manchester GOP to Chair his NH efforts. Hat tip to Race42008.
- Eyeon08 has some follow-up on the Evangelical Media's negative reaction to the Romney story.
- John McCain's Iowa team has added a key member of Arnold's Schwarzenegger grassroots operation to oversee ground game in the Hawkeye State.
- The Iowa GOP candidate wins the special election in Buena Vista giving the R's 46 seats in the 100 seat House.
