Clinton adds staff
Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign now includes Mo Elleithee, a veteran of a half dozen major campaigns of the past eight years. Elleithee will be the campaign's senior spokesperson and will oversee its regional press shop. Elleithee, currently a partner at Hilltop Public Solutions, was the New Hampshire comm. dir for Sen. Bill Bradley's presidential campaign in '00, the NH comm. dir for Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark in '04, the nat'l press secretary for Sen. Bob Graham's presidential bid before Clark, and most recently, the comm. dir on Tim Kaine's successful VA governor campaign. (Elliethee also worked for Mark Warner's '01 GOV campaign.) He joins Phil Singer, the campaign's deputy communications director and nat'l spokesman, Kim Molstre, the campaign's long-term communications planner, and Howard Wolfson, the as-yet-untitled maestro of Clinton's public image.
