 Independent Timothy Cahill says he’s in the gubernatorial race until the end, despite the resignations of two top staffers.

John Weaver

Cahill told reporters Friday he’s disappointed both senior adviser John Weaver and campaign manager Adam Meldrum quit. But he says Weaver’s involvement in the campaign had been waning, and Meldrum had been largely superseded by longtime aide Scott Campbell.

Cahill thinks his campaign can catch on in the final six weeks, even with lagging poll numbers. He says fundraising is up and he’s got a superior get-out-the-vote operation.

While Republican Charles Baker and others believe he can only play a spoiler’s role in the race, Cahill says, “It’s time for Charlie just to step up and stop whining.”

Democratic incumbent Deval Patrick and Green-Rainbow Party candidate Jill Stein are also on the ballot Nov. 2.

Cahill’s campaign says Scott Campbell will take over the day to day campaign functions.  Campbell was Cahill’s campaign manager in his successful campaign for Treasurer in 2002.
