Potter hires campaign manager for US Senate bidBISMARCK – Democratic-NPL Senate candidate Tracy Potter has hired North Dakota progressive activist Don Morrison as his campaign manager.
During the campaign, Morrison will take a leave of absence as executive director of NDPeople.org, where he has been for the past 14 years.
“Our veteran team of volunteers carried us for four months and brought us to this point, where we can bring a true professional on-board full time to carry this thing through,” Potter stated in Thursday’s campaign announcement. “Don is as committed to public service as anyone I know. … He’s an experienced organizer and is just the veteran we need to lead a team of volunteers.”
Morrison offers previous experience as assistant campaign manager for Byron Dorgan’s 1984 re-election campaign to the U.S. House and a volunteer on Kent Conrad’s Senate campaign in 1986.
