U.S. Senate candidate Tom Foley has reportedly hired a veteran campaign manger, according to Capitol Watch. That campaign manager is Gregg Keller, who managed Jim Talent’s U.S. Senate bids earlier this decade and is also a veteran of the Mitt Romney campaign.
That means that Rob Simmons, Chris Dodd and now Tom Foley all have nationally-known campaign managers.
Which leads me to wonder, is Tom Foley really serious about this thing? Is he going to take this campaign to the convention and to a primary with Simmons? Or is he just trying to position himself as the second-choice candidate should Simmons stumble?
Quarterly fundraising numbers may help us to figure that out. The quarter comes to an end next week.
