Changes In Locke’s Campaign

2 on the Beat has learned that Houston Mayoral candidate Gene Locke and political  consultant/fundraiser Sue Walden have ended  their working relationship.

This is a significant and suprising development in the  wacky world of politics, because it’s happening only days after Locke released a very successful campaign finance report.

I haven’t been able to reach Sue Walden for a comment, and Locke’s campaign spokesperson Kim Devlin would only confirm tonight that Walden  no longer works for the team.

Devlin would not  elaborate when asked to provide specific information about the campaign shakeup. 

She says Locke plans to hire a new fundraiser, but didn’t say  who would fill the position.

To be fair,  I  think  the majority of voters in Houston are more concerned about their own jobs, and don’t care who is making the fundraising  phone calls for the candidates. 

On the other hand, Walden is considered one of  Houston’ s  most prominent and well connected fundraisers.

 She is currently  raising money for  U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, who by all indications plans to challenge Governor Rick Perry in the G-O-P  gubernatorial primary.
