Craig Wesley first showed up at a medical conference in LA in 97. Craig and Mike were old med-school rivals and Carrie and Mike pulled a joke on him by pretending to be dating.

In 1998, Mike Horton decided to run for Chief of Staff at University Hospital and Carrie decided to be his PR manager. Carrie began to spend more and more time at the hospital with Mike and Austin became jealous. Both Carrie and Mike were shocked when Craig Wesley showed up and also planned to apply for the position. Craig thought that Mike and Carrie were now married, but Carrie and Mike told him that Carrie had married Austin Reed. Later, Craig caused trouble between Austin and Carrie by telling Austin that Mike and Carrie pretended to be boyfriend and girlfriend while in L.A. Carrie later explained it was just a harmless joke. After Laura Horton was arrested for killing Kristen DiMera, Mike got hit with some bad publicity. When Laura was convicted of attempted murder by reasons of insanity, Craig planted a story in the Intruder about Laura's insane genes being passed on to Mike.

The hospital was going to conduct interviews and single out all but two candidates. Mike and Carrie worked on preparing for the interview all night and fell asleep in Mike's office. The next day, Austin showed up and was peeved, but Mike explained everything. However, Craig decided to cause trouble with the board and suggested that Mike and Carrie were more than friends. However, when the board members saw Austin and Carrie kissing and happy together, they told Craig that he was obviously mistaken. After the interviews, Mike and Craig Wesley were named the two finalists.

The current Chief of Staff announced that he had to retire as soon as possible, so the board members announced that they would be hosting a reception at the Salem Inn where they would make their choice. Nancy, Craig's scheming wife came to town to help Craig win the Chief of Staff position. Nancy and Craig hired a woman to pick Mike up and then drug him, whereupon everyone at the Salem Inn would find them together. Mike was on his way to the Salem Inn when he saw a woman stranded on the side of the road. The woman's, Shelley, car had broken down and when she said she was at the Salem Inn, Mike offered her a ride there. On the way she told Mike that she was in town trying to find a doctor to help her son's asthma. Upon finding out Mike was a doctor she begged him to come up to her room and look at her son's records. Mike does so and while there she drugs him. Shelly puts Mike in bed with her and then waits to be found. Unfortunately, Carrie is the one who finds them and she screams, which brings the entire party into the room. When Mike wakes up he tells everyone he doesn't know how this happened. John suggests he was set up and Carrie vows to prove that Craig and Nancy were behind this. The next day, Mike gave a moving letter to Lexie to read on his behalf at the hospital. Though the board was going to hire Mike, they decided to hire Craig instead because of the bad publicity from the previous night's incident that would follow. Mike, whose family was giving a 4th of July barbecue, invited Craig, Nancy, and the board members. Carrie and Marlena tracked down the woman who Craig and Nancy hired to frame Mike. Carrie gave a moving speech about Mike to the woman, who was poor and couldn't afford her son's asthma medication. Marlena gives Shelly the name of a clinic that will help her out, but Shelly refuses to tell the board the truth. However, she eventually did, but didn't implicate Craig or Nancy.

The Horton's and Brady's hosted a family barbecue for the Fourth of July. At the barbecue, the board members appointed a shocked Mike as the new Chief of Staff. They told Mike that Shelly came forward and admitted to drugging him in order to rob him. Nancy and Craig were shocked when Mike made the announcement. The next day, Craig and Nancy came up with a new scheme to oust Mike. They thought if Carrie and Mike worked closely together something would eventually happen. Nancy convinced the board to hire Carrie as the hospital's PR person. The board liked the idea and told Mike about it and asks him to offer Carrie the job. Mike offered Carrie the job and she said she had to think about it. Carrie wanted to Ask Austin first and Mike understood. However, Sami saw the perfect moment to cause trouble when Lucas, who had been drinking, dropped Will. Sami rushed Will to the hospital and asked Austin to meet her there. At the hospital, Sami accused Lucas of hitting Will. When the story spread through the hospital, Carrie took the PR job to keep the story hush hush.
