Jeffrey Rupp’s personal comment on the departure of his campaign manager below,
June 28th, 2007 at 7:48 pm eWhile we knew Josh’s departure would get the rumor mill going the truth is not nearly as exciting as the speculation. Josh has done a wonderful job creating a grassroots base for my campaign.We have mapped out a strategy from now through the primary. The remaining work will be public appearances and our media buys, etc., an area where I have more expertise than Josh.
He received a very lucrative offer from another candidate and, after discussing it together, we agreed he should accept if for personal reasons. While Josh is gone the Rupp team is firmly in place and focussed on the August 7th primary.
Our relationship remains strong and I wish Josh much success now and in the years to come. As for the speculation I would ask that you consider the source. While we don’t have the largest (or smallest) war chest in the campaign, we have and will continue to work to let the people know why we feel we are best equipped to be Mississippi’s next secretary of state. —- Jeffrey Rupp
