Iowan Named Executive Director of DNC

Bleeding Heartland has the news that Jennifer O'Malley Dillon will be named the executive director of the DNC.  

O'Malley Dillon has strong Iowa ties...

Many Iowans know O'Malley Dillon from her work on John Edwards' presidential campaigns. She worked in field before the 2004 caucuses and was Edwards' Iowa campaign director before the 2008 caucuses. After Edwards left the presidential race, she became the director of battleground states strategy for Obama's campaign.

O'Malley Dillon is married to Patrick Dillon, whom she met while both worked on Edwards' first presidential campaign here. Patrick Dillon later managed Chet Culver's gubernatorial campaign andbecame the governor's chief of staff.

This is great news for O'Malley Dillon and probably solidifies the Iowa Cacuses's first in the nation status.
