Jordan political director resigns
Paulette Jordan’s field and political director Jennifer Martinez has resigned with a week to go until the primary.
“There was some disagreements,” Martinez told Idaho Reports. “I no longer agreed with the direction, necessarily, of the campaign. I still wish them the best of luck.”
Martinez declined to give details on those disagreements. Jordan’s campaign didn’t return a request for comment.
Martinez, a former Democratic candidate for Congressional District 2, was a prominent figure in the Jordan campaign. She was active on social media, promoting her candidate and engaging with potential Democratic primary voters.
Martinez said she resigned Monday afternoon, but emphasized there were no hard feelings and praised the campaign volunteers. “There’s a lot of momentum there. I’m still supportive of a lot of … the staff. ”
“I still wish them all of the best of luck with the campaign,” she said.
