Another FL tie in Obama's top staff



The Barack Obama campaign rolled out more senior staff titles today, including Jen O'Malley Dillon, the former Jim Davis and John Edwards campaign honcho who will be Battleground States Director. O'Malley's Garbo-like tendencies (with the press anyway) kept her skills from being fully appreciated in FL, but people who have seen her operate have learned never to underestimate her.

The full list: Director at the DNC; National Field Director: Jon Carson – formerly Obama for America Voter Contact Director; Senior Advisor to the Campaign and Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama: Stephanie Cutter; Industrial States Regional Director: Paul Diogardi – formerly Political Director for the Democratic Governor’s Association; Battleground States Director: Jen O’Malley Dillon – formerly Iowa State Director for John Edwards for President; Chief of Staff to the Vice Presidential Nominee: Patti Solis Doyle; Latino Vote Director: Temo Figueroa – formerly Obama for America National Field Director ; First Americans Vote Director: Wizipan Garriott; Northeast Regtional Director: Eureka Gilkey – formerly Obama for America Deputy Political Director; 50-State Voter Registration Director: Jason Green – formerly Obama for America political and field staff.
