Some interesting things I’m reading

Okay, here I am, doing one of the things I decided to use medium for — taking notes/ opinating on things I’m reading.

This is about Biden’s campaign manager.

She’s Irish-American. Really data focused — and therefore wasn’t worried in the days between Nov 3rd and 7th, when she delviered ‘election protection briefings’.

First woman to run a winning Democratic presidential campaign. Worked on Obama’s campaign too. Will be deputy cief of staff now. (Kellyanne Conway did Trump’s).

She insisted they focus most on ‘blue wall’ states — Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. Won them all! Didn’t pour much resources into long shot states eg Texas.

She developed the political bug early, working as a field organiser for Al Gore’s 2000 campaign
