For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms. 

The Beat DC blows through that trope. 

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Karen Finney Returns to DNC

Karen Finney Returns to DNC

Karen Finney is joining the DNC as a senior adviser for the 2018 and 2020 election cycles. The veteran Democratic operative most recently served as Senior Advisor for Communications and Political Outreach and Senior Spokesperson for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Additionally she was Communications Director for then-VP nominee Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA). Her work also includes four presidential campaigns, service in the Clinton White House, and Hillary Clinton’s first New York Senate race. This isn't Finney's first DNC stint. She was the first and remains the only African American spokeswoman for the DNC. She helped lead media strategy for Howard Dean’s “50 State Strategy,” re-branding the party, the successful 2006 Congressional elections, and DNC communications efforts during the 2008 presidential campaign. The UCLA graduate also previously served as Chief of Staff to the Chairman, CEO and President of Scholastic Inc. She returns to the DNC as the party is establishing its identity in a post-Trump world and battling for control of Congress.
