Dean Phillips, a progressive Democratic congressional candidate from Minnesota, has recently made a move that will surely resonate with Democratic primary voters. He has recently hired two of America’s most influential and progressive political operatives as senior advisers to his campaign. The two hired are Jeff Weaver, one of Senator Bernie Sanders’ closest confidantes and top political advisers, and pollster and strategist Chris Masami Myers, who worked for the Andrew Yang campaign. This high profile hiring by Phillips speaks volumes to his commitment to progressive values and his desire to combat special interests and corporate greed in Washington, D.C. Weaver, a political veteran of 30 years, will be responsible for helping Phillips build a national coalition of progressive activists who are seeking bold solutions to America’s most pressing issues. Masami Myers, whose background is in opinion and data research, will serve as an adviser on poll strategies and messaging. This is an exciting move for both Phillips and the progressive movement at large. Weaver and Myers are both highly respected and effective political operatives, and having them on board will undoubtedly strengthen Phillips’s campaign. At a time when most U.S. politicians seem to be catering to the wealthy and powerful, Phillips’s inclusion of Weaver and Myers demonstrates his commitment to advocating for regular Americans and progressive ideals. He is a candidate who knows that there are real solutions to the economic inequality and political corruption that have plagued our nation and is eager to hear the voices of everyday citizens. As the 2020 election approaches, Phillips’s hiring of Weaver and Myers is sure to be a boon for his candidacy and for progressives seeking meaningful and lasting change.
