WASHINGTON (CNN) - Hillary Clinton's deputy campaign manager has resigned, her campaign confirmed Tuesday night as the New York senator faced another round of disappointing primary results.
Mike Henry is the second senior staff-level departure from the Clinton team in the past three days. He was hired by Patti Solis Doyle - Clinton's former campaign manager - whose resignation was revealed Sunday.
"As someone who has managed campaigns, I share the unique understanding of the challenges that the campaign will face over the next several weeks," Henry said in a Tuesday e-mail to Clinton staffers.
"Our campaign needs to move quickly to build a new leadership team, support them and their decisions and make the necessary adjustments to achieve the winning outcome for which we have all worked so hard for over a year now."
Howard Wolfson, spokesman for Clinton's campaign, said that Henry had done "an outstanding job for the campaign and his expertise will be missed."
Henry, who helmed the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's independent expenditure program two years ago, was the author of an internal memo last year that suggested Clinton should skip Iowa - a proposal that was quickly dismissed when it became public.
A year earlier, he managed the successful campaign of Virginia's Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine, and was a lead advisor to former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner's campaign.
CNN projects that Clinton's rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, won Tuesday night's Virginia Democratic primary.
we see shifting again !! wow clintob your are done! OBAMA 08
It's like that scene from Monty Python. "Run awaaaay!"
I think OBAMA will become Pres. and be a major disappointment just like George W. I'm going to start printing up the bumper stickers right now...
"DON'T BLAME ME... I VOTED FOR HILLARY"
Its okay Clinton supporters, you can vote for Obama, we won't tell Hillary.... What happens on this board, stays on this board!
Oh my. The Clinton Express has officially jumped the tracks.
Actually, polling shows that Obama would beat McCain in the general if it was held today by 6 points.
CLINTON for Mexican
Houston, we (well, in this case, THEY) have a problem!!
Yes We Can!!!!!!!!!
Maybe had Clinton listened to Henry in the first place she'd have maintained her "inevitability" a long time ago.
Obama is whooping that Clinton butt! I am so tired of hearing people say that he cannot win the general election. I have just three words for that.... YES HE CAN!
I agree with RWM –
So sad that people are so negative and silly. I almost feel sorry for them.
Women voters? Why is Hillary's latest makeover is: as Obama? Hillary is so much in denial it is pathological.
Texas... please take heed of what the rest of the Nation wants, were counting on Ya !!!!!
I don't think he jumped ship, it's more like he was shoved overboard.
I don't blame him. Who wants to be on a losing team? its about to be a wrap for the Clinton Camp. She ain't gonna win another state.
Houston will be a problem for Hillary (all kidding aside), when it and the other major cities in Texas (sans El Paso) help Obama carry the state March 4th....
I trust math not miracles. HRC needs 60% showings in Ohio and Texas to catch up.
It just isn't her year, but it is OK . . .she can try again like McCain did.
HRC in 2016?
E in MD (brrrr)
If he will, atleast it will not be as bad a "crushing" as Hillary would face, so thank god.
Yes we can! This proves that money can win elections. More money=more exposure=name recognition=mindless voter's votes. Money is king!
Have you seen the latest poll showing Obama beating McCain in the general election?
Actually RWM, you may want to learn how to read polls before you declare McCain would "crush" Barack Obama. They seem to indicate otherwise.
Oh Oh, the ship is going down big. MAY DAY!!! MAY DAY!!!
WE are not giving up...come on Texas and Ohio get her in the Big Chair...
Hang in there Hillary
I hope you are not all speaking too soon, don't want to jinx Obamas chances....... we won't be able to cheer until Texas and Ohio are over.....
A great day for Obama. It is time for all democrats to rally around his banner.
