The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will promote Sadie Weiner to communications director next week, putting her in charge of the committee's communication strategy for the 2016 cycle, according to a release provided first to CQ Roll Call.  

Weiner will assume the role on Oct. 8 after current Communications Director Justin Barasky leaves the DSCC for Priorities USA , the super PAC supporting former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign.  

Weiner is currently the national press secretary at the committee. She's held top communications roles on a number of Senate contests, including former Sen. Kay Hagan's unsuccessful re-election bid in 2014, and Sen. Sherrod Brown's successful 2012 campaign in Ohio.  

“Sadie is a veteran of some of the toughest Senate races in recent history, and her knowledge of the Senate campaign playing field is unmatched,”  Tom Lopach, executive director of the DSCC, said in a news release. “For almost a year now Sadie has been a key member of our senior staff, helping our campaigns navigate complex media landscapes and moving the ball forward as we seek to regain the majority, and we are thrilled to have her move into this new role at the DSCC.”
