Bachmann shakes up staff, again

Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is making key staff changes in her congressional office and her campaign team.

Politico is reporting that the shakeup claimed chief of staff Ron Carey, the former chairman of the Minnesota Republican Party, and campaign finance director Zandra Walcott. Carey was Bachmann’s fifth chief of staff in just four years.

Bachmann press secretary Rachel Horn issued this statement about Carey:

“Congresswoman Michele Bachman thanks Ron Carey for his service to her and to the district and wishes him the best for his future. Effective August 1st, she also welcomes Andy Parrish back as a Senior Advisor to the Congressional office and expects a smooth transition that will continue to put the needs and priorities of the 6th Congressional District first.”

There was also a statement from campaign manager Gina Countryman regarding Wolcott:

“Congresswoman Bachmann thanks Zandra for all of her service and looks forward to opportunities to work with her again in the future.”
