EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden has named Carl Kuhl as his new campaign manager.
Kulh is a principal in the public affairs firm Connolly Kuhl Group. He’s also worked on the campaigns of former Sen. Norm Coleman, gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer and former St. Paul Mayor Randy Kelly. He’s replacing Brad Herold, who recently stepped down but remains a senior adviser to the campaign in what McFadden spokesman Tom Erickson says was a planned reshuffle.
McFadden, a former investment banker, is the GOP-endorsed candidate against incumbent Democratic Sen. Al Franken. McFadden is the heavy favorite in an August primary race that will also feature state Rep. Jim Abeler and three lesser-known rivals.
