The Minnesota DFL said today that it has hired two staffers in preparation for the 2016 election cycle.
Kendal Killian is the new 2016 coordinated campaign manager and Sam Smith is a new communications associate.
Killian had been with the House DFL Caucus as a field organizer in 2002 and John Kerry for President in 2004. He was political affairs coordinator for the Minnesota Association of Professional Employees and was campaign manager for Congressman Rick Nolan in 2014.
Smith was a field organizer for the DFL House Caucus in 2014, and worked as a communications fellow for Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin said:
“With the upcoming presidential campaign, a crucial election in the Second Congressional District, and an opportunity to win back the State House, the DFL is thrilled to make these early investments in the 2016 election cycle.”
