WELL, BYE: Dem Campaign Manager Leaves Race in Wake of Free Beacon Exposé. “Tedra Cobb manager out after video showing candidate won’t tell public her true position on banning certain guns.”

Mike Szustak, who has been running Cobb’s campaign since April, told the Watertown Daily Times that he was no longer working on the campaign. It is not clear if he quit or if he was fired.

The move comes in the aftermath of a Washington Free Beacon report on a video showing Cobb telling a group of teen supporters that she could not publicly state her desire for a ban on certain rifles for fear that her view is unpopular and could cost her the election.

“When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?’ And I said they should be banned,” Cobb said in the video. “And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that.”

I can’t help but notice that the wanna-be gun-grabber candidate is still in the race.
