NEW ORLEANS, LA — The Louisiana Democratic Party today launched "Campaign for Louisiana," a project focused on securing victory for Democrats up and down the ballot in the upcoming 2014 election, and named Andrew Zucker as its communications director.
Campaign for Louisiana will work tirelessly to hold Republicans accountable for siding against the middle class while embracing policies that hurt Louisiana families and defend Democrats from false attacks leading up to 2014.
Zucker joins Campaign for Louisiana having worked on multiple successful campaigns. He worked for then-Senator Barack Obama's campaign for president in 2008, and has since worked for the AFL-CIO as Ohio Deputy Communications Director and Ohio Democratic Party as Press Secretary. Most recently, Zucker worked as Press Secretary for Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey's successful campaign for Senate.
"We are very pleased to have Andrew on board," said Louisiana Democratic Party Executive Director Stephen Handwerk. "His experiences working on winning campaigns will help guide Sen. Landrieu and the rest of our ticket to victory in 2014."
"I'm thrilled to be here in Louisiana and excited to be joining such a capable team ahead of the 2014 election," said Campaign for Louisiana Communications Director Andrew Zucker. "I look forward to helping re-elect Sen. Mary Landrieu and contrasting her record of fighting for Louisiana with the records of Rob Maness and Bill Cassidy, who continues to duck important issues in this campaign and must finally explain why he now opposes the same health care reforms he introduced in 2007, before the president even took office."
