What They Are Saying: Landrieu Tosses Campaign Manager Under Her Struggle Bus

Mary Landrieu’s desperate attempt to revive her flailing campaign by firing her campaign manager 27 days before the November election rightfully raised some eyebrows last night. Here’s a snapshot of what some are saying about the move straight out of the “ship is sinking” playbook.

 

James Varney, NOLA.com

“incumbent Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu walked a fine line even before sacking her campaign manager in a late move that cries desperation.”

 

Greg Roberts, The Advocate

“An 11th-hour shake up of a campaign can signal panic or desperation, or at least dissatisfaction with the candidate’s election operation to date, but the Landrieu staff portrayed the moves as business as usual for Landrieu.”

 

Julia O’Donoghue, NOLA.com

Never a good sign when a campaign replaces its manager with less than month to go, like @MaryLandrieu's has. http://bit.ly/1vPsr1V #LaSen

Don't care if you're Sen. Awesome. Switching up campaign staff 27 days out is NOT a good sign. #LASEN http://roll.cl/1BUdQ7g

Uhhh, it's Oct. 8 and Sen. Landrieu has just replaced her campaign manager. http://www.nola.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/10/sen_landrieu_replaces_campaign.html …
