Congresswoman Taps Latina Press Sec for Senate Campaign

Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ)has tapped Molly Nuñez to join her Senate campaign as Press Secretary. It won’t be her first campaign rodeo. She previously served as Spokesperson for Tom Pérez’s campaign when he was running to serve as DNC Chair. Before that, she was part of the Rapid Response Team on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The 2013 Washington University graduate began her career as an Account Manager at DCO Group. She later served as a Public Information Officer for DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. Nuñez joins Sinema’s campaign as the Congresswoman is leading in the polls with a strong lead over Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ). Sinema is considered the presumptive Democratic nominee. Analysts say that Democrats have a real chance to win a Senate seat in Arizona, where Donald Trump beat Clinton by less than 4 points in 2016. More about Molly here.
