Obama Adds to Virginia Staff

Tim Craig

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) announced today he is relocating additional staffers to Virginia.

Stacey Brayboy, who managed Obama's Virginia effort in the days leading up to his 30-point victory in the Feb. 12 primary, will become the deputy director of his state general election campaign. Kevin Griffis will be the communications director.

Both Brayboy and Griffis are familiar with Virginia politics. In 2005, Brayboy worked on Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's gubernatorial campaign. She later became deputy director of the Virginia Human Rights Council.

Brayboy left the Kaine administration last year to join Obama's campaign. Before working for Obama in Virginia, she directed his successful effort in South Carolina.

Griffis also worked for Obama in South Carolina. After that campaign, he served as Obama's Virginia communications director. He also served as Obama's communications director in Mississippi, Indiana and South Dakota.

In 2005, he was communications director for the Virginia Democratic Coordinated Campaign.

Earlier this month, Obama announced that Mitch Stewart will be the director of his Virginia campaign.

Why does the Messiah even need to campaign? Can't we just have the coronation today?
