Bernie Sanders is bringing on Jessica Vanden Berg, a well-known veteran of Iowa and national campaigns, to his caucus team. She will serve as a senior advisor for their Iowa operation.

As the AP reported last month, Vanden Berg was approached by Joe Biden’s team for a top role in his eventual campaign in Iowa. Biden is expected to announce his presidential bid this week or next. There is a quickly-shrinking pool of experienced Iowa talent that could steer a major caucus campaign.

Vanden Berg ran Christie Vilsack’s 2012 congressional campaign, worked for former Congressman Leonard Boswell, and served as the deputy director for the Iowa Democratic Party. Outside of Iowa, she ran Jim Webb’s successful 2006 campaign for Senate and served as Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s chief of staff. She also helped start up Emerge Iowa, a group that encourages and supports women who run for office.

“We couldn’t be happier to have Jessica joining our growing team here in Iowa. She has a long track record of working for successful statewide campaigns that have brought real progressive change to Iowa and across the country,” Misty Rebik, Sanders’ state director, said in a press release. “I have no doubt her expertise and vision will play an important role in driving us to victory in next year’s caucus.”
