Rand Paul Getting a Makeover
Check out Rand Paul, doin’ the campaign staff shuffle. And gettin’ the GOP establishment makeover. Ditchin’ his dad’s cronies. Not talkin’ ‘bout civil rights no mo’. No, no, no.
Doin’. The campaign staff. Shuffle.
BOWLING GREEN — Kentucky senatorial candidate Rand Paul said Tuesday he’s planning a campaign staff shake-up a week after a round of interviews in which he dismayed fellow Republicans by discussing his views on racial segregation.
Campaign manager David Adams, a Republican strategist and former blogger who has been with the campaign since it began, will remain, but perhaps in a different role, Paul said.
Paul, who said he was bolstering his staff, won the GOP nomination last week with campaign workers who were largely political novices and volunteers. He said all the staffing decisions haven’t yet been made.
Adams declined to comment on the reorganization Tuesday evening.
A former aide to Paul’s father Ron Paul, the Texas congressman and former Republican presidential candidate, has become increasingly visible in the Senate campaign. Jesse Benton, who was communications director for Ron Paul’s last presidential bid, has been by the younger Paul’s side at most of his recent campaign events.
