Ohio Dem continues to lose staff

Ohio Senate candidate Lee Fisher (D) continues to shed staff.

He’s already on his third campaign manager, and by the end of the week he’ll have his second press secretary of the campaign.

John Collins, who had been the lieutenant governor’s spokesman, is leaving the campaign to go work for Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Jack Conway, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

A Fisher campaign source told the paper that the parting was “mutual and amicable.” Collins had been on the job for the past eight months.

Fisher earlier this month lost his research director.

His latest campaign manager, Lynne Bowman, said Collins’s departure was nothing to worry about.

“Ohioans aren’t the least bit concerned about campaign staffing,” Bowman said.

Collins did not respond to a request for comment.
