Update from Joe: This is as much a gauntlet-throwing move as anything for Team Entenza. Hiring these outside firms this early seems to be a clear sign that Entenza is putting together a professional campaign machine for the long haul through the September primary. Its primary newsworthiness is from Team Entenza to the rest of the field — last I checked, voters generally don’t care that much about consultant hirings…but opposing campaigns do.
