Cory Booker finalizing Iowa leadership team of high-profile Iowa staffers in preparation for possible 2020 run

Cory Booker is finalizing the leadership of a potential Iowa campaign team — an indication the New Jersey senator is moving closer to announcing a run for president.

According to a source familiar with the process, Booker will hire, should he run, a team of high-profile Iowa staffers that includes Mike Frosolone, Haley Hager, Joe O’Hern and Tess Seger.

  • Frosolone directed the Iowa House Democrats’ political operation, leading the recruitment of 95 Democratic candidates to run in the House’s 100 districts — the most in 30 years.
  • Hager was the Iowa state director for NextGen America, the organization funded and created by billionaire activist Tom Steyer. She has a background in organizing and field work.
  • O’Hern’s resume includes work for the Iowa Democratic Party’s coordinated campaign in 2014 and as Martin O’Malley’s caucus director in the 2016 cycle.
  • Seger has been the communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party for the last year and a half.

Booker’s national campaign manager would be Addisu Demissie, who also has Iowa ties. Demissie was in the state for two caucus cycles, working as a Polk County organizer for John Kerry in 2004 and as a deputy field director for Hillary Clinton in 2008.
