Caroline Fayard (D) seems to be getting former Sen. Mary Landrieu’s old campaign team and staff back together, as she hired a number of them for her own US Senate campaign.
Fayard, an attorney from New Orleans with heavy political ties, has already set herself up as a centrist Democrat, similar to that of Landrieu when she was in office. So it’s no wonder Fayard’s hired three former Landrieu team members to help run her campaign.
Fayard’s Senior Advisor T Bradley Keith formerly served as Landrieu’s state director for 15 years.
Political director to Fayard, Angele Wilson-Grant served as political advisor for Landrieu during her last three Senate races.
And Fayard’s Finance Director Jordan Mitchell served as deputy finance director on Landrieu’s re-election campaign in 2014.
Ironically, a spokesman for Fayard said the announcement of the team was a sign that Fayard “represents a new generation of leadership for Louisiana,” despite the team being part of the old, Landrieu political guard.
