FishbowlDC has learned that the Politico’s Managing Editor, Bruce Drake, is stepping down from that position, but will serve as a consultant for the Politico for at least a few months.

You’ll recall that Drake was hired during the “Capitol Leader” phase of the Politico and we’ve seen several people, including Marty Tolchin, take on revised roles in Politico World. It is likely that Drake’s new position within the organization is a similar revision.
