Sources say Mayor Cory Booker, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in the Democratic Primary, is pulling together his campaign team and examining the possibility of hiring Marlon Marshall of 270 Strategies.
It’s not a done deal, one source insisted, but the choice of Marshall in a key campaign role would reflect Booker’s ties to a proven member of the political arm of President Barack Obama’s operation.
A founding partner in the D.C.-based political consulting firm, Marshall served as deputy national field director for Obama's re-election campaign, and served as Missouri General Election Director for Obama in 2008. He was also field director in Nevada, Ohio, and Indiana for the presidential campaign of then-Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Marshall served as national field director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
Booker goes back to the beginning of the Obama presidential campaign experience. Along with Jersey City Mayor Jerry Healy, Booker was campaign co-chair of Obama's 2008 Presidential Campaign.
In terms of his New Jersey-based team, Booker has enlisted Steve DeMicco and Brad Lawrence as campaign strategists.
East Orange Democratic Committee Chair Leroy Jones, Essex County Democratic Party operative Phil Alagia, South Jersey’s Tricia Mueller of the Carpenters and Patricia Campos, New Jersey political director for UNITEHERE, are all expected to play key roles in the campaign, two sources close to Booker said.
