Giuliani finance shakeup

From NBC/NJ's Matthew Berger
Anne Dunsmore is out as finance director for the Giuliani presidential campaign.

The campaign confirmed the change first reported by the Politico, and said Jim Lee will take over as "Finance Co-chair and CEO." Campaign spokeswoman Katie Levinson said it was an amicable departure. But a Giuliani aide said that with Dunsmore "it wasn't the right fit."

Campaign officials said the shakeup was not an indication of disappointment over the third quarter fundraising dollars. Giuliani has been criss-crossing the country in the final weeks of the quarter, and is planning several West Coast events this weekend. He has even gone to London to raise funds among ex-patriots.

The campaign official said that Dunsmore's departure was more of an indication of differing strategic visions moving forward.
