John McCain campaign manager, chief strategist make selves scarce
John McCain's campaign manager (Terry Nelson) and his chief strategist (John Weaver) have both quit or been fired. While his support for Iraq may have played some role, his immigration stance and his reputation as a RINO and perhaps the fading of his supposed role as a "maverick" probably played the larger role. Needless to say, as with the USA Today link, expect the MSM to downplay the immigration-related aspects, since their narrative is that supporting immigration "reform" is a political winner.
Meanwhile, according to this, multiple persons "close to the campaign" say that another exiting is Mark Salter, "long-time chief of staff and co-author of his five books". And, apparently all three left in a non-amicable manner. Perhaps McCain's last ditch effort could involve borrowing some staff from Teddy Kennedy.
