Nathan Henry told WisPolitics.com this morning he is no longer the campaign manager for Dem Tony Evers’ gubernatorial bid.
Maggie Gau, who had been working as Evers’ spokeswoman, said she will be taking over as campaign manager. But she declined further comment.
Henry described the split as amicable and said he left last week, but declined further comment about details.
“It was a privilege working for Tony Evers. I think he’ll make a great governor,” Henry said.
Evers’ race was the first time Henry had run a campaign. Prior to going to work for Evers last summer, Henry had worked for the Mellman Group since 1999. That included directing research for Justice Shirley Abrahamson’s campaign; working with the Greater Wisconsin Committee, Jim Doyle’s 2006 race and Dem state Senate campaigns in the 2011 and 2012 recalls; and serving as field director for two congressional campaigns.
Gau has worked for several Democratic state lawmakers and was deputy political director for Barack Obama’s 2012 Wisconsin operation and was campaign manager for Den Janis Rinhand’s successful Dem state Senate bid. The Wausau native graduated from UW-Madison in 2009.
