Frist Adviser Heads Huckabee Campaign

An adviser to former Senate Majority Leader, Bill Frist, has been appointed Campaign Manager for Mike Huckabee's bid for the Republican nomination.

John "Chip" Saltsman, who has been the Chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party, was a senior adviser to Frist's PAC Volpac.

Apparently Saltsman was very active in preparing for a possible run by Frist for the nomination. Frist announced late last year that he would not be entering the contest.
