Campaigns & Elections named their list of 2011 Rising Stars, and MYD’s own Field Director, Colin Campbell, was the youngest of 15 Democrats across the nation to make the cut!
Colin Campbell, 23, is an associate with Bill Lynch Associates. He managed Larry Hanley’s upset campaign in the first successfully challenged election for Amalgamated Transit Union international president in twenty-nine years.
What the write-up doesn’t get into is that Colin has helped MYD’s efforts to significantly expand our field capacity over the past two years, supporting our activities in key State Senate races in the 2010 election cycle and the 2011 Open Seat Project.
Colin will be honored on June 17 in DC. Past Rising Stars receiving this honor include David Axelrod, Donna Brazile, James Carville, Alex Castellanos, Rahm Emanuel, Ben Ginsberg, Ed Goeas, Mike Murphy, Bill McInturff, and George Stephanopoulos.
