The New York Times reports:
Anita Dunn, a veteran Democratic operative and top adviser to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., is taking on an expanded role in his campaign as he seeks a reset after a disastrous fourth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.
“She will be working closely with us on campaign strategy and overall coordination on budget and personnel as we build a bigger campaign for the next phase,” according to a campaign email obtained by The New York Times.
The email was sent on Thursday by Greg Schultz, Mr. Biden’s campaign manager, and a longtime Biden adviser, Steve Ricchetti, who have had differences with each other, reflecting internal generational tensions that have divided the Biden campaign, according to some Democrats close to it.
MORE: Two Biden sources tell us that Anita Dunn now has final decision-making authority – not Greg Schultz, the current manager.
This is a major shift. And it’s one that’s being greeted enthusiastically by some on Team Biden https://t.co/RZ1ci93EGy
