Two top aides to Ed FitzGerald are leaving the Democrat’s troubled campaign.

Spokeswoman Lauren Hitt confirms that campaign manager Nick Buis and communications director Daniel McElhatton have left their day-to-day roles with the campaign, but will assist as consultants on an as needed basis.

She notes that any other staff changes will be announced later this week -- and those reportedly will include the departures of two other consultants and even Hitt herself. It’s unclear whether the Democrats will spend what little money FitzGerald has left on an ad blitz or turn their attention to the downticket races.

 

Listener Comments:

I's too bad that the dirt on Fitzgerald dug up by Kasich's operatives and publicized heavily by the Yellow Plain Dealer has caused the weak staffers of the Fitzgerald campaign to flee for greener pastures. But the Democratic Party victory is needed in Ohio for policy reasons. Kasich is pulling all kinds of tricks, like endorsing well-liked TRessel, to fool the middle class into thinking he's the best candidate. If you follow politics you know that the defeat of Kasich is in the best interests of all of Ohio.
