DSCC Announces Mindy Myers To Run Independent Expenditure in 2016

The DSCC has announced that Mindy Myers will run the committee’s independent expenditure in 2016. The DSCC IE is one of the top spenders on behalf of Democratic Senate candidates airing ads to support the campaigns.

Myers is a veteran of some of the toughest Senate races in recent history, having managed Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s historic 2012 campaign– the largest grassroots campaign in Senate history and only race in 2012 where a Democrat defeated a Republican Senate incumbent. For the past three years, Myers has served as Warren’s Chief of Staff. She also managed Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s 2010 campaign, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s 2006 campaign and served as New Hampshire State Director for the Obama campaign during the general election in 2008.

Myers also worked as a Special Assistant in the Legislative Affairs Office of President William J. Clinton, as Deputy Director for Constituency Outreach for Al Gore’s presidential campaign in 2000, as Senior Advisor and Political Director for former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, and as Chief of Staff for Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

“Mindy Myers is one of the top Democratic operatives in the country, and I am thrilled to announce that she will head the DSCC’s independent expenditure arm in 2016,” said Tom Lopach, DSCC Executive Director. “With Mindy’s extensive experience leading some of the toughest, most expensive Senate campaigns in recent history, she knows exactly what we need to do to win back the majority in 2016. The DSCC is lucky to have a talent like Mindy joining our efforts.”

“I’m excited to be joining the DSCC next year as the Director of their independent expenditure effort,” said Myers. “Already, the DSCC has done outstanding work to recruit a top-tier class of candidates and even expand the map. Democrats have a terrific opportunity to win back the Senate majority in 2016 so that Americans can once again have a Senate that is working for the middle class, and I’m honored to join that fight.”
