Michael Muller, who was campaign director for Hillary Clinton’s NJ primary race, will run the NJ coordinated campaign for the 2008 cycle. State Democratic Chair Joe Cryan:
… We have the best candidates, we have the issues on our side and we have a strong Democratic tide fueled by the accumulated failures of George Bush and the Republicans. Hard working and skilled campaign staffers such as Michael will help convert Democratic advantages into Election Day victories.
The coordinated is the election effort of the NJ State Democratic Committee through which resources are channeled to support individual campaigns, provide common resources to candidates and party-build for successive election cycles. With sharply-defined choices in both the Senate and Presidential campaign, national issues are certain to filter into campaigns up and down the ticket.
Muller, who currently manages the communications shop for the Assembly majority office, is a well-known political presence in Trenton. With so many of the state’s institutional Dems driving the Clinton efforts until recently, it continues to be interesting to watch how the Clinton and Obama camps – and their supporters – make the effort to unify for November.
