Here’s a link to my full story at spokesman.com on the big shake-up today in Vaughn Ward’s congressional campaign. Dennis Mansfield, spokesman for rival candidate Raul Labrador’s campaign, said, “I’ve never seen a self-immolation of a political campaign like this in the 30-plus years I’ve run races.” And Mike Tracy just returned my call from earlier today, and said he’s the campaign’s new communications consultant and, for now, the press contact, but he’s not the press secretary. “I will be working with the media,” Tracy said, “for the foreseeable future.”
