Patrick Dillon is Culver’s Chief of Staff. He used to work in Edwards’ Prez campaign in 2004. Dillon’s wife is Jen O’Malley Dillon. She is Edwards’ State Director this time around. Culver’s Communications Director is Brad Anderson. He, too, worked for Edwards during the last campaign.
For the record, no confirmation from the Gov’s office or the Edwards’ campaign. I did get some time on the bus with Edwards today after an event in Ames. I asked him what the endorsement would mean to him. His answer, “I’m going to respectfully decline to offer hypothetical opinion.”
