Have things reached the point in the ongoing (and going, and going…) Minnesota Senate race, where even Norm Coleman’s staffers may have seen the writing on the wall? In recent weeks, two of his top staffers have gotten new jobs.
LeRoy Coleman (no relation), who served as Coleman’s Senate communications director, has now joined the Republican National Committee as director of media affairs. And two weeks ago another top Coleman staffer, campaign manager Cullen Sheehan, became an RNC regional director.
The fact that Sheehan signed up for a new job is pretty telling, even though he’ll still be helping out with the Coleman camp. The reason is that Sheehan is the official co-plaintiff, along with Coleman, in the actual ongoing election lawsuit.
Norm himself got a consulting job months ago with the Republican Jewish Coalition, providing him with a source of income.
