Bernie Sanders Hires Former Obama Aides After Raising $3 Million In Four Days

Bernie Sanders is doing OK with fund raising. Now he has assembled an expert campaign management team made up of former Obama aides. Sanders’ campaign will build upon his strong online presence and grassroots appeal.

The independent senator, who is running for president as a Democrat, has hired the firm Revolution Messaging to run digital ads and online fundraising. The staffers with the firm who will be working on Sanders’ campaign include Revolution Messaging’s founder, Scott Goodstein, who ran the 2008 Obama campaign’s social media and mobile programs; Arun Chaudhary, who was the first official White House videographer; Shauna Daly, who served as deputy research director on Obama’s 2008 campaign; and Walker Hamilton, who was a lead programmer for that campaign.

‘Like a lot of Obama supporters, we were looking for a candidate with a track record of doing the right thing — even if it meant taking on Wall Street billionaires and other powerful interests. A candidate who could inspire a movement,’ said Goodstein. ‘Bernie Sanders is that candidate.’
