Brad Blakeman, president of the right-wing advocacy group Freedom’s Watch, will resign his position today “amid infighting among the group’s leadership.” According to the National Journal’s Peter Stone, critics said Blakeman neglected “major projects since the group sponsored a $15 million television ad campaign in 2007 to promote the Iraq war surge.” Blakeman previously served in the Bush administration.
