The DSCC announced today that Martha McKenna will run the committee’s independent expenditure for the 2018 midterm elections.
Martha is a campaign veteran who worked as the DSCC political director for the 2008 and 2010 cycles and then as the IE director for the 2012 and 2014 cycles. Her vast experience and work as a top-notch ad-maker for her firm McKenna Media will be key to the IE’s work supporting Democratic Senate candidates across the country.
“Even as Republicans struggle with bitter primaries, lackluster fundraising and a health care agenda that is deeply unpopular with American voters, we know each of these races will be a fight to the finish and that is why we are thrilled to have Martha’s strategic insight and talent,” said DSCC Chair Senator Chris Van Hollen. “Martha’s leadership will be essential to our work to elect Senate Democrats.”
“Democratic Senate candidates are laser focused on fighting for working families, from protecting health care to standing up against giveaways to big corporations. We need to have their back this election year,” said McKenna.” I’m honored to be a part of the fight and ready to make sure Senate Democrats have the support they need.”
