Allen Picks Campaign Manager

The Richmond Times-Dispatch has this article about Senator Allen gearing up for his '06 re-election battle. He has hired Jason Miller, who worked for Senate candidates Jack Ryan of IL, Mel Martinez of FL, and Tom Coburn of OK. Martinez and Coburn both won tight races, while Ryan was forced to withdraw from his race due to illicit allegations made by his ex-wife in divorce proceedings.

This follows the recent hiring of Dick Wadhams, who managed John Thune's successful Senate campaign in SD, as Allen's Chief of Staff. These moves make it clear that Allen is putting all the right people in place not just for his re-election campaign, but also for a potential run at the White House in '08.
