From Politico's Jonathan Martin:
Rudy Giuliani's campaign manager Mike DuHaime will be featured as Fox News Sunday's "Power Player of the Week," according to a source not named Mike DuHaime.
DuHaime, a son of the Garden State, returned to his Tri-State roots to run Rudy's race earlier this year after serving as political director of the RNC. Before that, he was the regional political director for the northeast for Bush-Cheney '04.
Known for his decidedly un-Jersey-like, easy-going demeanor, DuHaime is mature beyond his 30-some-odd years and will likely be a very good sport about the inevitable razzing that will come when hometown friends, college buddies and his campaign hack cronies get wind of his honor.

"Enlisting Fox is another reminder of how much Christie has truly relied on insiders, including Democrats, to bolster his agenda or bail him out of trouble. Not long after arriving in Trenton in 2009, Christie began collaborating with George Norcross, the deeply entrenched Democratic Party kingmaker, to help him cut deals with a Democratic-controlled Legislature.
When his close ally David Samson resigned as chairman of the Port Authority over conflict-of-interest questions earlier this year, Christie replaced Samson with John Degnan, a pillar of the Democratic Party establishment. And now, confronted with a crisis, Christie has turned to “Jamie,’’ as Fox has been known throughout political circles since he began as an aide in the Democratic Senate in the 1980s." - columnist Charles Stile
