Major Shakeup in Romney's World

Trent Wisecup, the director of Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's Commonwealth political action committee, has quit his post.

Reached Saturday morning, Wisecup confirmed his departure. "Governor Romney is a great governor," he said. "But I have decided to consider other options." Wisecup said he will move from Boston back to Michigan as he weighs his options.

Wisecup's departure comes as a surprise since he had decided to stay on with Romney even after the Governor parted ways with Mike Murphy -- his longtime media consultant and the founding member of DC Navigators, the consulting company in which Wisecup is a partner. A source close to the situation said that Wisecup's decision was due in large part to conflicts with Beth Myers, the governor's chief of staff. Myers is expected to play a major role in the expected Romney presidential bid.

The news comes just one day after Romney addressed the attendees at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference here in Memphis and the same day that the Massachusetts governor is in Iowa visiting that state's county conventions.
