This just in… Quinn’s media firm fired, fires shots

* 10:30 am - More really bad campaign news for Gov. Pat Quinn. His media firm, AKPD, has just exited the campaign [it was fired]. And check out this harsh goodbye statement…
Oh, man, what a shot that was. When was the last time you saw a national media firm issue a statement like that? Yikes.
AKPD produced the last two ads of the primary which most believe helped keep Quinn in office. Here’s my favorite of the two. It really was an excellent spot…
* Quinn apparently fired AKPD after hiring White.
* One of White’s more recent ad campaigns was that 2008 ad blitz by T. Boone Pickens…
I’m getting mixed reviews on White. He’s a “big concept” guy who clicks with Quinn, but he’s not a top tier consultant who can also be hired more cheaply than others.
