Wendy Davis hires campaign manager with history-making track record

AUSTIN – Sen. Wendy Davis’s camp announced Sunday her campaign manager is Karin Johanson, who managed the bid of U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate and first woman in Wisconsin to hold the post.

“Karin has proven that she can win tough races. She has taken on and beaten a full arsenal of failed leadership, despite millions in negative ads,” said Davis Communications Director Bo Delp in a statement. “Karin will be an excellent and outstanding addition to this historic and exciting campaign. We are honored that Karin will be joining us as we continue our fight to make the promise of Texas available to all families.”

The Davis campaign in announcing Johanson’s hiring Sunday said she has more than 25 years of experience in elections and in the legislative arena.

She was chief of staff and press secretary to U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer and was executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006.
