A Change of Command at The Giffords Campaignby Art Jacobson on Jul. 11, 2010, under Politics
Update July 14
Mr. Graver, who is leaving the Giffords Campaign to attend law school, was the operations manager of the Giffords campaign office and not the campaign manager. There was no campaign manager until McLeod took office.
Heard on the street:
Rodd McLeod, who was the campaign manager of Giffords’ first congressional campaign, will be returning to take command of this year’s campaign. He’s replacing Daniel Graver, who is leaving to attend law school.
Giffords is running for a third term as Congresswoman, representing Congressional District 8.
McLeod, who had been serving as Terry Goddard’s campaign director has been replaced by Jan Lesher.
While at “Second Saturday” downtown Dataport ran into a crowd at Hotel Congress attending a campaign event for John Dougherty, who’s running for the Democratic nomination for US Senator. What was interesting was that the Dougherty event was filled with a lot of long time Democratic Party activists.
That race seems to have boiled down to Glassman vs Dougherty.
