Unlike previous runs, Biden is building out Iowa campaign team with 'robust' hiring, voter outreach

From the Des Moines Register:

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/elections/presidential/caucus/2019/07/29/joe-biden-iowa-caucuses-2020-organizing-hires-staff-social-media-facebook-fundraising-democratic/1766592001/


Fueled by strong fundraising and leading in the polls, Joe Biden is building the kind of top-tier Iowa organization that eluded him in his previous runs for president.

The former vice president benefits from a deep well of goodwill in the state. And at campaign stops, Biden frequently promises Iowa voters he plans to work hard to earn their support.

His campaign is making good on that promise by locking in existing backers and bringing in new support through extensive spending on social media and outreach from a growing staff roster. By Aug. 1, the campaign says it will have about 75 total staff members in Iowa, 60 of whom will be field staff.

"We have quickly staffed up in a pretty robust way to really match the staff size of most of our competitors on the ground in Iowa," said Adrienne Bogen, Biden's Iowa field director.

In fact, Biden's operation is now one of the largest if not the largest so far in the state, surpassing many of his Democratic rivals. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren's campaign reported 65 staffers in Iowa as of July 1, while U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders had 48, former U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke had 44 and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris had nearly 50.

1. Neither of his two previous runs got off the ground - dropped out early both times.

2. Yes. You really can't compare those runs to this one. Even Trump has stopped calling Biden

 

"1% Joe."

4. The first time he dropped out before the first caucus, the second time after the Iowa caucus...

 

...he never actually ran in any primaries.

3. So Good to hear about, highplainsdem!

 

The More the Merrier for Biden to reach Iowa's Democratic Voters! Peacetrain will be happy to see this!

So what he ran twice before? If you really want something you keep trying. And, the last time he ran he ended up being Vice President to President Obama.. which gave him invaluable experience for his 2020 run!

Mahalo!
