Florida Operative Takes Charge of Day-to-Day Operations for Fred Thompson

The titular head of former Senator Fred Thompson's budding presidential campaign will be former Michigan Senator and former Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham, but the man who will be in charge of the day-to-day management of the national campaign will be Randy Enright.

Enright is a former Florida regional political director for the Republican National Committee and a former executive director Republican Party of Florida.

They replace acting campaign manager Tom Collamore, former vice president of the tobacco company Altria.

Rumor has it the shake up occured because of tension over the central role of Jeri Thompson - Fred Thompson's much younger wife (24 years younger).

The Washington Post reported that a veteran GOP political operative involved in the Draft Fred movement claimed that Jeri was "calling all the day-to-day shots."

It should be noted that Mrs. Thompson is also a GOP political strategist in her own right.
