Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's Former Digital Campaign Director Joins Obama Campaign

BY Sarah Lai Stirland | Friday, July 20 2012

Ryan Alexander, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's former digital campaign director, has joined President Obama's digital campaign team in its Chicago headquarters.

Details on his new position are sketchy, but his experience in Barrett's campaign to challenge Republican Governor Scott Walker during the recall election earlier this year in Wisconsin might help the campaign to better organize itself in the swing state.

Alexander participated in a panel discussion about the outcome of the recall election at this year's Personal Democracy Forum, where he said that Barrett's message suffered from being defined by Walker's campaign on television months before Walker was able to fight back.
