Shake-up on Team Gilchrist

If ever a campaign begged for the candidate to pack up and go home, it would be Jim Gilchrist’s. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m with those who initially was open-minded about Gilchrist. I’m no fan of Campbell’s, and was desperately hoping that this Minuteman Founder would be sane enough to carry the conservative banner.

Oh how I was, and am, disappointed.

Latest word out of the Gilchrist camp is that campaign manager Howie Morgan and vaguely-defined deputy Jeff Lehman have left the campaign. Rumor has it that newfound OC’er (or is it OC’ite?) Michael Jameson, who was/is helping out Bill Hunt’s fledgling campaign is taking over the reins over at Casa de Gilchrist.

As a fellow Hack, I’ve got to feel bad for Howie, Jeff, and now Michael. With all the promise of someone taking the right-flank away from Johnny Boy, it really is a shame that Gilchrist is such a nut. I mean, without the bankruptcies, the off-hand Camejo comments, and the public contempt for the “haves” and taxpayers in general, he might’ve been able to pull off a McClintock-type reputation for being a respected, thoughtful, statesman-like conservative.

Instead, he’s just a kook.

Too bad.

Not only is Gilchrist a nut, he is a nut with no money. That's why he is losing his staff.

Campbell couldn't even muster more than two votes for leadership in the State Senate.

Once Campbell goes to Washington ... he will be an obscure congressman. His wealth is puny compared to the rest of the members of congress so he won't get the treatment he got as a "wealthy" state senator.

He will get bored real quick and try to run for higher state office and get shot down while his consultant makes money.
