TAMPA, Fla. (TBO.com) — Charlie Crist's newly formed campaign for governor hit a bump in the road Tuesday as he announced that recently hired campaign manager Bill Hyers won't be working for the campaign after all.
“It's early. Our campaign structure is still coming together. Bill wanted to stay in New York because it was good for him,” said a statement from Crist, relayed by public relations consultant Kevin Cate, who has worked with the campaign.
The campaign was tight-lipped about the departure, providing no other details or explanation Tuesday, including the reasons for the break or possible replacements.
Newly hired press spokeswoman Lauren Hitt, who has worked with Hyers on past campaigns, will be leaving also.
