Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee officials plan to name Anne Caprara as their political director for the 2014 cycle Thursday.
"Anne is a rising star in the Democratic Party and I'm pleased that she is returning as a member of our team for the 2014 cycle," DSCC Executive Director Guy Cecil said in a statement. "We know the challenges that we face this time around and it's not going to be easy — but battle tested talent like Anne who knows what it takes to build strong campaigns will be one of the reasons we hold the Senate."
Caprara served as the committee's deputy political director during the 2012 cycle. She has also been a top aide to former Rep. Betty Sutton, D-Ohio, and has worked for EMILY's List, an advocacy group promoting female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights.
