“I am thrilled Ciara is joining our team,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said. “Ciara brings to the Susan B. Anthony List’s communications team both political expertise from her time on the campaign trail with Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle and first-hand knowledge of the pro-life issue through her time at Nevada Right to Life. Her experience will be a valuable asset in SBA List’s communications efforts.”
Obama for America Hires Marshall
Obama for America hired Kouri Marshall as its Washington, D.C., campaign director. Marshall, a 2005 graduate of Eureka College, will be tasked with leading volunteer efforts in the nation's capital.
President Barack Obama easily won Washington, D.C., but neighboring Virginia is expected to be a battleground state again, and volunteers could be dispatched across the Potomac River as they were in 2008.
Correction: June 21, 2011
An earlier version of this column incorrectly identified which Obama-affiliated organization Marshall is joining. Marshall was hired by Obama for America.
