The team consists of four former Senate staffers and three White House aides, including Amy Dudley, who falls into both categories. Dudley, a former Hotline staff writer and now Bidenís campaign press secretary, most recently served on the official side as Bidenís deputy press secretary and was previously press secretary to former Sen. Ted Kaufman (D-Del.), who replaced Biden in the Senate.
Sheila Nix is Bidenís chief of staff, Scott Mulhauser is deputy chief of staff, Trip King is political director, Nora Cohen is deputy director of advance and Virginia Lance is scheduler.
Nix most recently served as U.S. executive director for the ONE campaign and was previously chief of staff to Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and ex-Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.). Mulhauser, a veteran of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, serves as a senior adviser and counsel to the Senate Finance Committee and has held other senior communications positions.
King is a South Carolina native, served as a top staffer to former Sen. Fritz Hollings (D-S.C.) and in 2007 was South Carolina state director for Bidenís presidential campaign.
Like Dudley, Cohen and Lance both recently worked for Biden in the White House. Cohen, a 2008 campaign veteran, most recently was the vice presidentís deputy director of advance, and Lance was Bidenís scheduler.
