Cheri Beasley’s campaign manager, finance director quit

By Bryan Anderson, Associated Press/Report for America

Two top campaign officials working to elect North Carolina Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Cheri Beasley have decided to leave the campaign.

Beasley’s campaign manager, Katie Gladstone, will remain on staff for the next couple weeks as her team transitions to a new leader. Margaret Nelson, Beasley’s finance director, left in July.

The campaign confirmed the departures to The Associated Press on Thursday. Nelson’s LinkedIn page also shows she no longer works with the campaign.

“As we gear up for the next phase of the campaign, we are focused on continuing to meet with North Carolinians throughout the state, and our campaign is grateful for everyone who has worked to put our campaign in the strong position we are in today,” said a statement from Dory MacMillan, a spokesperson for Beasley’s campaign.

Neither Nelson nor Gladstone responded to requests for comment on why they decided to leave the campaign to fill the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Richard Burr.

Beasley has won two statewide elections but narrowly lost her 2020 bid to remain as chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.
