Former Crist Spokeswoman Joining the Bailey Campaign?

isaacErin Isaac, Charlie Crist's former spokeswoman, appears to be gearing up for a new role, possibly with the Jim Bailey for mayor campaign.

Isaac, who resigned from her position with the governor's office in November of 2009, was spotted this week at the Bailey campaign's kick-off event. 

The publisher of the Financial News and Daily Record, Bailey officially entered the race following months of speculation that he was planning to run.

When reached for comment by The Jacksonville Observer, Isaac would not confirm or deny that she would be taking a role with the publisher's mayoral campaign.

"My understanding is that Mr. Bailey will be making announcements about his campaign staff in the coming weeks," said Isaac. 

Shortly after entering the race, Bailey's chief political strategist Mike Tolbert announced he was quitting the campaign to pursue a consulting opportunity on the West Coast.  When asked by a reporter with the Florida Times-Union if he was leaving due to a disagreement with Bailey on the direction of the campaign, Tolbert declined to give any comment.

Isaac is also a former spokeswoman for the Duval County Supervisor of Elections and was considered for a position within the McCain campaign in 2008.

What Isaac's role with the Bailey campaign might be remains a mystery, though it seems likely she would be heading up their communications and media relations.
