If you think that Bernie will have any influence on the Biden campaign. Think again!

Joe Biden is on a hiring spree across battleground states, with the presumptive Democratic nominee rolling out his teams in North Carolina and Nevada on Thursday.

Biden is racing to build out state operations in places where President Donald Trump and Republicans have been on the ground for months. The new hires in North Carolina — where the Republican National Convention was originally planned before being moved to Jacksonville, Fla., over a safety dispute — will work to flip the state back to Democrats after Trump won it in 2016.

Biden is also announcing three operatives in Nevada, who join newly assembled teams the campaign unveiled in the last five days in Wisconsin and Arizona. Like the previous two states, the hires in North Carolina and Nevada have spent time working on campaigns there.

L.T. McCrimmon, who until recently was deputy legislative director for Gov. Roy Cooper of North Carolina, is coming on as Biden’s state director there. A Scotland County native, she was the political director on Deborah Ross’s unsuccessful challenge to Sen. Richard Burr in 2016 and a legislative assistant for former Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.).

Maggie Thompson, Biden’s new adviser and chief of staff in the state, was Elizabeth Warren’s North Carolina state director. She is currently serving on the Biden campaign’s Education Unity Task Force. McCrimmon and Thompson are joined by adviser Scott Falmlen, a Raleigh-based strategist and former executive director of the state Democratic Party.

Biden’s state ramp-up has been a top priority for his campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, who has talked extensively about expanding the map in the fall to states such as Arizona, Georgia and even Texas. While Biden aides have said they are in regular touch with local health officials and state parties to weigh when it’s safe to resume in-person campaigning, O’Malley Dillon earlier this week downplayed the significance of door-knocking as the “gold standard” for campaigns and said she was hoping to engage voters in other ways.

Another priority for the Biden campaign has been building out its state teams on the front end rather than pulling them together in fragments. In Nevada, the campaign has named Alana Mounce as its state director. She was the executive director of the state Democratic Party, after working for the Democratic National Committee’s chairman, Tom Perez, and the Hillary Clinton campaign in Colorado.

Biden’s new coordinated campaign director, Shelby Wiltz, who is the caucus director for the state Democratic Party, will synchronize between the Biden campaign and the party. A Clinton campaign veteran, she worked with Mounce to help Nevada Democrats sweep nearly every statewide office in the midterms.

Bolding be me.😁

Watch the Booker race. He wins and that is a major ‘ fu3k you’ to the DNC. 😊👍

Unfortunately the DNC is way ahead in the “fu3K you” to progressives if one is keeping score.🤔😏

If he wins, he gets one more termite out of the already rotting wood

In reading Alito’s dissent, it appears that the arguments made did not fit the situation exactly. If anything, the dissent points out the discrepancies in the argument and how it could have been argued differently. I haven’t read Sotomayor’s commentary yet. But I suspect Ruth Bader Ginsburg agrees with the majority because the threshold of the argument was not met.

humphrey

Alito did not dissent. Sotomayor and Kagan were the dissenters!

Benny

I meant Alito wrote the majority opinion, which is the opposite of dissent, as you kindly pointed out!
