GOP gubernatorial candidate Chris Dudley's
campaign manager is stepping down. Chris Gulugian-Taylor,
a veteran GOP political operative came to Oregon late last year to run Dudley's first foray into electoral politics. But now he is returning to California.
"Chris resigned for family reasons," says Dudley's spokeswoman, Brittany Bramell. Dudley's policy director, Kent Craford,
a former Gallatin Group lobbyist and CEO of SeaPort Airlines, will take over as campaign manager until the campaign hires a permanent replacement for Gulugian-Taylor.
