The rumors of a new campaign manager for Biden have been doing rounds for quite some time in the political spectrum of the country. Many believed that Biden would appoint a new manager after the losses against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. However, the announcement came on a month later on March 12. Biden named Jen O’Malley Dillon as his next campaign manager replacing Greg Schultz. The decision to appoint a new campaign manager is quite odd, as Biden and his team have recovered from the losses and are now winning every state primary.
Dillion, who is 43 presently, worked recently with Beto O’Rourke. Bete suspended his campaign and endorsed Biden in Texas last month. A source close to Dillion disclosed that he played a role in Bete’s decision to support Biden. Dillion comes with ample of experience in the US political campaigns. She served as deputy campaign manager for Obama’s reelection in 2012 and also worked as the Democratic National Committee’s executive director in Obama’s first term from 2008 to 2012. An official statement from Biden’s campaign said - “Schultz will with us and work on shifting his focus to organizational planning for the general election. He will also continue to bolster the campaign’s external outreach.”
The removal of Schultz might be due to several reasons. Some of them are his inabilities to deal with operational issues at the early stages of the race like weak fundraising, ground-game stumbles, lackluster debate speeches, etc. Biden also announced that Anita Dunn, who was the chief advisor, will now serve as the senior adviser.
