Once he fully joins the campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, N.Y., Baker is expected to play a senior role overseeing campaign interactions with the Democratic Party, including the party committees and 2016 Democratic National Convention plans. The campaign official who confirmed Baker’s hiring would not confirm those duties.
Baker has extensive campaign experience, particularly in field operations and get-out-the-vote operations. He served on board of the Super PAC Priorities USA during the 2012 election, in which the group raised millions for President Obama’s re-election. Baker has since resigned from the group, now known as Priorities USA Action, and which is now supporting Clinton’s presidential bid.
