Moran Hires Trippi
Former delegate Brian Moran (D-Alexandria) announced today he has hired Joe Trippi as media consultant and general strategist for his campaign for governor.
"I'm excited to join Brian's team because of his record fighting for working families,'' Trippi said. "I think Virginians will respond to his leadership and experience as we grapple with today's tough times. I've known Brian for a long time and he has a bold vision for Virginia's future and the record to back it up."
Trippi has been credited as the man who "reinvented campaigning" after he developed the grassroots, online network for the Howard Dean's presidential campaign in 2004, according to a press release. Using the Internet, Dean raised more money than any Democratic presidential campaign to that point - all with donations averaging less than $100.
"We're very excited to add Joe to an all-star team working to build the best grassroots campaign," Campaign Chairwoman Mame Reiley said. "Joe is the architect of the 21st century campaign and knows how to help insurgent candidates win elections."
