Karin Johanson, who’s run numerous national campaigns for Democratic candidates, is stepping down as campaign manager. State Rep. Chris Turner, an Arlington Democrat, is taking over.

 

Turner, 41, managed four successful campaigns for Congressman Chet Edwards, a Waco Democrat.  Turner was first elected to the Texas House in 2008 and again in 2012.

 

The Davis campaign did not provide a reason for changing campaign managers.
