According to Chris Brennan and Jonathan Tamari of the Inquirer, Mike Mikus is being moved from his position of campaign manager to chief strategist. Jordan Marks will take over as campaign manager.
“National Democrats were unimpressed with the campaign’s early effort, according to one Washington source,” Brennan and Tamari report.
The McGinty campaign, though, downplayed any suggestion of upheaval.
“We are very excited that we are bringing on more capacity,” spokeswoman Sabrina Singh said. “Mike will continue to work with the campaign and serve as the chief strategist and Jordan will serve as campaign manager.”
It’s is unclear whether this was a planned move or one that was forced upon Mikus.
While shakeups like this are not exactly uncommon, they usually occur in campaigns that are struggling. Yet a Quinnipiac Poll released this week shows the Democratic nominee just one point behind Republican incumbent Sen. Pat Toomey.
