The campaign manager for independent gubernatorial Gatewood Galbraith has resigned.

Blogger and political activist Ralph Long announced Friday he is leaving the campaign to pursue other interests, but he remains a supporter of the perennial candidate and running mate Dea Riley.

“I may work in other political campaigns at some future date but there are no definite plans at this time,” he told WFPL via e-mail. “The business opportunity was the primary motivator.  I still believe that Gatewood and Riley are the best choice for Kentucky.  They have my support and best wishes.”
