Just In Case You Thought It Might Be Over Soon

Onward to Pennsylvania!

Campaign staff

Coming to head the Obama campaign will be political director Nicole Price and field specialist Jeremy Bird, both veterans of the Obama campaigns in South Carolina and Maryland.

Washington-based consultant Tom Lindenfeld, who managed the field efforts in former Mayor John Street's successful campaigns has relocated to Philadelphia for the duration.

The state director of the Clinton campaign is widely expected to be Tony Podesta, who has managed several statewide campaigns, including the successful 2004 effort for John Kerry in Pennsylvania (Podesta said in an interview last week he hasn't been offered a job yet).

Clinton communications will be handled by Mark Nevins, who worked on Street's 2003 campaign. Philadelphia-based operative Abe Dyk has been working for months, and will remain on board.
