Meet Ben Nuckols.
This fresh-faced scion of Wisonsin is Gov. Quinn's new campaign manager. He's young. He's from out-of-state. And he's never managed anything in Illinois.
But he does have experience with estranged politicians, so he just might be perfect for Pat Quinn.
Nuckels has been chief of staff to Wisconsin Liuetenant Gov. Barbara Lawton since 2007. Like Quinn and his former boss Rod Blagojevich, Lawtondoesn't exactly have a cozy relationship Gov. Jim Doyle.
Or as Nuckels put it: "Governor Doyle’s style of governance doesn’t include daily meetings with Lieutenant Governor Lawton."
Perfect. Because Gov. Quinn's style of governance is all-Quinn all the time.
