Williams' Campaign Manager Leaving

August 11, 2011

Kentucky Republican gubernatorial nominee David Williams' campaign manager is resigning in the middle of the state Senate president's race against Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear.

Luke Marchant, a former advisor to Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is leaving the campaign to pursue other "professional opportunities," but he will "continue to be available to the campaign for consultation," according to a statement from ret. Major General Donald Storm, Williams' campaign chair.

This isn't the first staff shake-up for the Williams campaign. After the May primary, then-campaign manager Scott Jennings was replaced by Marchant. Jennings has remained with the campaign in an advisory role.

Williams has not named Marchant's replacement yet.

The Republican is the underdog in the race, lagging in polls and in fundraising. The election will take place November 8.
