Interesting news from Politico confirmed by one Arkansan named in the story and, I suspect, the subject of a promised phone call today from another Arkie.
The research super PAC American Bridge has made a string of hires from within Clintonland for an offshoot project called “Correct the Record,” an effort whose goal is protecting potential 2016 Democratic candidates – with Hillary Clinton chief among them.
The group, which was launched in the 2012 cycle by Clinton ally and Media Matters founder David Brock, has hired from within Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and is getting financial support from two longtime Clinton donors, officials with the group told POLITICO.
Those hires include Arkansan Adrienne Elrod, working recently for U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez, and Zac Wright, the political strategist who worked in the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008 and also worked in the Mike Beebe organization — for a time, as his communications director.
Friends – my apologies for not letting most of you know in advance of this announcement but I wanted to shoot you all a quick note and let you know that I’ve taken a new position with Correct the Record, a new effort to push back against negative misinformation aimed at potential 2016 presidential candidates. I’m very excited about the mission and the opportunity to work with an extraordinary team.
I have a message to call Wright today. I think I can guess the subject.
