President Joe Biden is growing his unusually small reelection campaign team, announcing Monday plans to add three new people to the payroll.
Former Rep. Cedric Richmond is joining as campaign co-chair. Former U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Rufus Gifford will serve as finance chair of Biden-Harris 2024 and DNC National Finance Chair Chris Korge will join as finance chair of the Biden Victory Fund, the larger of the president’s joint fundraising committees.
The Biden campaign has a run a bare-bones operations since the president announced his reelection bid in April, spending less than some Senate candidates and employing just four people: Campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez, principal deputy campaign manager Quentin Fulks, spokesperson Kevin Munoz and general counsel Maury Riggan.
