Clinton Explains Campaign Manager Replacement

February 11, 2008

(AP) Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton says the replacement of her campaign manager reflects a need to add more people to her campaign staff.

Clinton says former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle will remain an adviser. Maggie Williams, a longtime Clinton confidante and former chief of staff from Clinton's days as first lady, replaced Solis Doyle.

Solis Doyle announced her departure to the staff Sunday. The former first lady has struggled to gain traction with black voters in her race against rival Barack Obama, who hopes to be the first black president.

Obama is expected to win the District of Columbia primary Tuesday as well as contests in neighboring Virginia and Maryland, in part because of his popularity among blacks who make up a significant portion of the Democratic electorate in each place.
