Senior Obama Campaign Aide Joins Warren 2016 Effort

By    |   Tuesday, 11 November 2014 10:34 AM EST

The Ready for Warren super PAC, which seeks to draft Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for president, has hired the Obama presidential campaign’s former video director to help devise its media strategy.

Kate Albright-Hanna, who oversaw production of thousands of videos for Obama’s 2008 campaign, will serve as Ready for Warren’s deputy campaign manager, The Hill reported.

Before joining the Obama campaign, Albright-Hanna worked at CNN and served as a senior producer for MSNBC. She also served as communications director for Zephyr Teachout, a progressive insurgent who stunned political prognosticators by winning 34 percent of the vote against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in September’s Democratic primary.

Warren has repeatedly stated that she is not running for president and does not want the PAC raising money on her behalf, and in August her attorney sent a letter to the Federal Election Commission disavowing Ready for Warren’s activities.

But the PAC’s campaign manager Erica Sagrans says the group has no intention of backing away from the effort to persuade the Massachusetts lawmaker enter the race, and it has been hiring state coordinators for critical states like New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina.

Ready for Warren nonetheless faces an uphill battle against Ready for Hillary — a much larger organization which has had staffers working for months on a possible presidential run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
