Washington, D.C. – Priorities USA Action today announced its new leadership structure for the 2016 presidential election cycle. The organization will be led by Co-Chairs Jim Messina and Governor Jennifer M. Granholm along with a Board made up of progressive leaders from throughout the country. In addition to the Board, Diana Rogalle was named Finance Director.
“We couldn’t be more proud and excited to be joined by Jim Messina and Governor Granholm, whose leadership and political acumen will be invaluable in our effort to elect a Democratic president in 2016,” said Priorities USA Action Executive Director Buffy Wicks. “We are here to make sure that progressive values are not drowned out by right-wing organizations, and that the necessary resources are in place to give the middle class a voice in the 2016 election.”
“Having played a critical role in 2012, Priorities USA Action has very clearly demonstrated its ability to help elect a Democratic president. We intend to replicate that role and its success again in 2016, defining a clear choice for the American public,” said Priorities USA Action Co-Chair Jim Messina.
“We know that well-funded right-wing groups will raise record amounts of money to protect their narrow special interests. But as we proved in 2012, a strong message delivered effectively can help to level the playing field for Democratic candidates,” said Priorities USA Action Co-Chair, Governor Jennifer M. Granholm. “There is already a great deal of energy on the Democratic side for the 2016 presidential election and we look forward to working alongside allied organizations that are also dedicated to making sure the pieces are in place for victory in 2016.”
