McAuliffe Keeps Building A Staff

Tim Craig

Former Democratic National Committee Terry McAuliffe continues to staff up in preparation for his potential campaign for governor next year.

McAuliffe recently hired Peter Kavanaugh, who most recently served as the field director for the Virginia Democratic Party's coordinated campaign, according to sources familiar with the hire. With Kavanaugh's help, the state party conducted a $13 million campaign this year in support of President-Elect Barack Obama, Senator-Elect Mark R. Warner (D) and Democratic congressional candidates.

It's unclear what Kavanaugh's title will be, but sources expect him to remain concentrated on field work. In ramping up his campaign, Democrats say McAuliffe also appears to be getting advice from Peter O'Keefe, who served as his senior advisor at the Democratic National Committee. O'Keefe is also a veteran of former President Clinton's campaigns during the 1990s.
