Changing of the Guard at DCCC
Jon Vogel, who oversaw the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's massive independent expenditure effort in the 2008 cycle, will take over as executive director of the organization, according to sources familiar with the move.
Vogel replaces Brian Wolff, a confidant of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), who is headed to the Edison Electric Institute as a senior vice president.
Regular Fix readers will note that Vogel had recently left the DCCC to join the Democratic polling firm Global Strategy Group as a partner. He started the 2008 cycle as the political director at the DCCC before eventually overseeing an $85 million expenditure in dozens of contested races on ads and direct mail.
Musical chairs is common at these committees early in election cycles as veterans who have spent two (or four or more) years riding herd over a large number of races begin to grasp the enormity of doing so again.
