Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s Campaign Manager, Will Tackle Another Difficult Job

first_imgJennifer O’Malley Dillon had barely started the job when she shut it all down.Just two days after Ms. O’Malley Dillon was named President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s campaign manager, her operation went entirely remote, an early concession to a virus that would come to define the entire election.- Advertisement – Ms. O’Malley Dillon, 44, found herself taking on tasks never before handled by a campaign, like setting up testing protocols to keep her staff and a 77-year-old candidate safe from a deadly virus, while also trying to win a race that her party viewed as an existential battle for the future of the country. Her campaign battle cry, according to friends and former staff members: “We can do hard things.”Ms. O’Malley Dillon will now tackle another difficult job when she assumes the role of deputy chief of staff in the new Biden administration. A stalwart of Democratic politics, she has never worked in the White House and is a rare new admission into Mr. Biden’s tight circle of trusted aides. Expected to be charged with managing White House operations — a job that has traditionally included logistics, administration and making sure the place runs on time — Ms. O’Malley Dillon will join an administration facing a raging pandemic, economic instability and a fiercely divided country.“She’s a fixer,” says Christina Reynolds, an old friend of Ms. O’Malley Dillon and a vice president of Emily’s List, a leading Democratic women’s group. “She deals with the situation that you live in, not the situation you wish you had.”last_img read more
