Leslie Sullivan and Krystle Alvarado, two top fundraisers for Gov. Rick Perry, left the Perry campaign after the March primary, the campaign has confirmed.
Asked about the change, a campaign spokeswoman did not have a reason for their departure.
Katie Wilson, previously the deputy finance director, is now the campaign’s top fundraiser.
Sullivan and Alvarado appear to have been quite successful for Perry, whose campaigns are always well-funded.
Sullivan is the wife of Ray Sullivan, Perry’s chief of staff.
UPDATE: Several sources familiar with the situation have said Sullivan and Alvarado could not reach an agreement with campaign leadership over how much they should be paid.Several sources sounds pretty strong... so I will take it at face value that this is the case...
Records show that his finance director, Krystle Kirchmeyer Alvarado, who was formally named to her position in July, received a payment of $88,698.95 in January, not long after she and her husband, Christian, bought a place in San Antonio for $334,860.
Alvarado, a 28-year-old University of Texas grad, made a tidy $114,856 through June 30. Her peer at the Kay Bailey Hutchison gubernatorial campaign, Caroline Snell, made $29,197 in the same period.
Through June, Hutchison reported raising around $12 million to Perry's $9 million.
Read of her news on a MySpace post, where Alvarado reported:Christian and I are enjoying life and having fun together! Christian is in his 3rd (and final!) year at UT Law and I'm still working in politics and loving every minute of it! Christian accepted an offer with a law firm in San Antonio...so come this summer we are making a move! After 8 years in Austin I am sad to go but I'll still be working here 3 days a week. I'm looking forward to living in a new city and decorating our new house! If anyone has any advice about being a homeowner - I'd love to hear it!Since the start of last year, Alvarado has banked $259,598.
