Gov. Kate Brown (D) has chosen “a vet­er­an LGBT cam­paign­er,” Thomas Wheat­ley, as her new cam­paign man­ager.

“Wheat­ley has re­placed Mi­chael Kolenc, who was sud­denly fired earli­er this month. Chris Pair, a cam­paign spokes­man said Wheat­ley star­ted last week.” (OPB)

“Kolenc says he was fired after clash­ing with Brown’s staff over his de­sire that the gov­ernor be more pro­act­ive on ma­jor is­sues fa­cing the state—in­clud­ing the pro­posed $3 bil­lion cor­por­ate tax in­crease known as Meas­ure 97. And while polls show Brown with a com­fort­able lead over” on­co­lo­gist Bud Pierce (R), “the staff­ing tur­moil is sig­ni­fic­ant be­cause she’s already pre­par­ing for more for­mid­able chal­lenges in 2018.” (Wil­lamette Week)
