Mark Penn resigns as Chief Strategist for Camp Hillary


From NBC’s Mark Murray and John Boxley Mark Penn, who recently met with the Colombian government regarding a trade deal that Hillary Clinton opposes, has resigned his post as the Clinton campaign’s chief strategist.

“After the events of the last few days, Mark Penn has asked to give up his role as chief strategist of the Clinton campaign,” campaign manager Maggie Williams said in a statement. “Mark, and Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates, Inc. will continue to provide polling and advice to the campaign.

Williams added, “Geoff Garin and Howard Wolfson will coordinate the campaign’s strategic message team going forward.

Per sources in the campaign, Hillary Clinton was disappointed with Penn’s meeting with the Colombian government. She is a big opponent of the trade pact. Penn knew that he had made error in judgment and realized over the weekend that he would need to step down as chief strategist.

Clinton agreed.
