Clinton Names Campaign Manager

Twenty-four years after entering politics as an intern for a Massachusetts congressman, Peter S. Knight has been named manager of President Clinton’s re-election campaign.

The selection of Knight, a longtime associate of Vice President Gore, came as surprise to campaign officials.

Knight’s selection, however, was considered a symbol both of Gore’s influence in the campaign and of President Clinton’s desire to pick an uncontroversial manager who could resolve some well-known differences between his two top campaign strategists, consultant Dick Morris and White House aide Harold Ickes.

Knight ran Gore’s vice presidential campaign in 1992 and has since worked as a lawyer and as a Democratic Party fund-raiser.
