Professional political campaign operatives are a nomadic class, roving from one state to the next, hoping their careers ascend with the fortunes of their candidate employers. If not, there's always the next election. This is a pretty typical state of affairs in the raise-money-to-buy-media-spots practice of American politics, and has only accelerated with social media in the mix.
So, it's a fairly common occurrence when an out-of-state political operative is hired to head some portion of a statewide campaign, particularly if the race has a high national profile. One recent example in Wisconsin is Ciara Matthews, who just officially joined Gov. Scott Walker's team defending against the recall campaign.
What happens, though, when more than one such politico is hired, each from opposite sides of the aisle?
