Obama campaign keeps their distance from Ferriero

Seeking to avoid any connection to indicted Bergen County Democratic Chairman Joseph Ferriero, Barack Obama's New Jersey presidential campaign won't use the Bergen County Democratic headquarters this fall — a high tech operation that includes over 100 telephone lines. At a meeting of the party's Executive Committee earlier this week, U.S. Rep. Steven Rothman, the Chairman of Obama's state campaign, announced that fifth district congressional candidate Dennis Shulman's Wyckoff headquarters will be used instead. That's a slightly different message than the one coming from Obama state campaign director Tricia Mueller, who has told Bergen Democrats that they would be based out of the Carpenter's Union hall in Hackensack. Mueller was a political operative for the Carpenters before joining the Obama campaign.
