David Williams looks to tea party for campaign manager

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican David Williams has hired a new
campaign manager with tea party connections a week after a
lackluster win in Kentucky's gubernatorial primary.
Luke Marchant, who served as political director in Florida tea
party favorite Marco Rubio's successful U.S. Senate race last year,
replaces Kentucky GOP operative Scott Jennings. Jennings will
continue to serve as general consultant and senior policy adviser
to Williams.
Jennings said the Williams campaign needed additional manpower,
and Marchant's experience with the tea party made him a natural
choice for the job.
Marchant said in a statement he is convinced that Williams and
his running mate Richie Farmer can get Kentucky's economy back on
track and bring prosperity to families.
