The source, who isn’t involved in a campaign, said it appears prominent Conservative backroomer Jeff Bangs got fed up with “too many cooks” directing how to keep Smitherman the frontrunner in a marathon race that heated up unexpectedly early.
The “cooks”, they said, include Smitherman and Jaime Watt, a key figure in provincial Conservative campaigns in 1995, 1999 and 2003 and co-chair, with Smitherman, of Barbara Hall’s 2003 mayoral bid that saw her frontrunner status collapse in a loss to David Miller.
There’ll be plenty more scrambling for the exits before this thing is over. Believe me, I know.
