Elizabeth Warren makes key 2020 hires ahead of 1st Iowa trip

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren made key political hires in Iowa on Wednesday, signaling her intention to mount a strong campaign in the leadoff caucus state ahead of her first trip there as a likely presidential candidate.

The Massachusetts Democrat hired Brendan Summers, who managed the 2016 Iowa caucus campaign for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Emily Parcell, whose past campaign roles include political director for Barack Obama’s winning 2008 Iowa caucus campaign.

Perhaps more noteworthy, Warren also snapped up operatives fresh off victories in November’s midterm elections who had been wooed by other prospective presidential candidates.

Warren hired Kane Miller, who managed Democrat Abby Finkenauer’s winning campaign over GOP U.S. Rep. Rod Blum in Iowa, and Janice Rottenberg, who led the Iowa Democratic Party’s coordinated campaign and was credited with helping the party win two GOP-held U.S. House seats and gain ground in the state legislature.
