Real estate tycoon-turned Senate candidate Jeff Greene has hired Josh Morrow, a political consultant with experience running campaigns for self-financing rich guys.
Morrow worked for Tom Knox, a self-made millionaire raised in Philadelphia's housing projects who dropped out of the Democratic race for Pennsylvania governor earlier this year. Knox invested $11 million of his own money in a failed bid for mayor in 2007 and in a settlement, admitted violating campaign finance laws in an ad attacking his opponent.
Morrow worked on that campaign and others with Joe Trippi, the mastermind of Howard Dean's presidential bid. Prior to that, he also worked in California and in Nevada, where he aided the re-election campaign of Sen. Harry Reid in 1998.
