So, who are the folks running Battleground Texas? Only some of the best. They're hiring, and the effort will be a huge one. But to start, here's the talented leadership team:
Executive Director: Jenn Brown
Jenn Brown is an Obama for America veteran. In the 2012 campaign, she was field director in Ohio, overseeing a 600-person staff among 130 offices. She's been all over, though. She was the Minnesota State Director for the Obama Campaign in 2008 before being promoted to Regional Field Director, and she managed 9 states during the 2010 midterm election cycle for OFA. And she's from California, a graduate of UC-San Diego. She has lessons from everywhere to pull from for Texas.
Digital Director: Christina Gomez
You might be more familiar with Christina Gomez's comedic work at #WhenInSession, but this native Texan has a quality resume of electing Democrats. She served as a digital strategist for the Democratic National Committee during the 2012 cycle. She earned her stripes here in the Lone Star State, though, when she worked for State Representative Trey Martinez Fischer and then the Mexican American Legislative Caucus. Oh, and she seems pretty happy to be returning home.
Senior Adviser Jeremy Bird and 270 Strategies
Battleground Texas is advised by the 2012 National Field Director for the Obama Campaign, Jeremy Bird, who now runs 270 Strategies, a “people-centered, data-driven, and digitally-sophisticated” firm that “unites some of the best and brightest talent among democratic politics today.” He helped create and implement the neighborhood team organizing model
