The reelection campaign for President Joe Biden has hired Andy Crystal, who previously worked in research for “comedians” Jon Stewart and Hasan Minhaj, as Lauren Hitt, who most recently served as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) communications director.
“We’re excited to welcome Andy and Lauren to the already talented and fierce communications team working to reelect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Michael Tyler, Biden’s communications director, said in a statement published by POLITICO on Saturday.
Concerns from Democratic operatives regarding the speed of campaign expansion, particularly in swing states, appear to have prompted this latest recruitment drive.
The news comes as thousands of far-leftists descend on Washington, D.C. to protest the Biden government’s approach to the Israel-Hamas war. The campaign has experienced several resignations and flare-ups as a result of the conflict, with staffers recently writing to their boss stating: “your administration’s response to Israel’s indiscriminate bombing in Gaza has been fundamentally antithetical to [our] values — and we believe it could cost you the 2024 election.”
