January 03, 2020

MANCHESTER, NH — Deval Patrick's campaign today announced they are growing their New Hampshire campaign with nine staff hires and a campaign office in Manchester. This announcement comes just before Governor Patrick makes his 10th trip to the state this weekend, and plans to spend more time in New Hampshire than any other candidate before the February 11th primary.

"We are thrilled to be growing our campaign in New Hampshire with a group of talented leaders and organizers who all have strong ties to the region," said Campaign Manager Abe Rakov. "As other campaigns begin to focus elsewhere, we're going into January with momentum and a commitment to running a campaign that everyone from each and every corner of the Granite State can make their own."

In addition to State Director Wyatt Ronan, the leadership team announced today is:

Wyatt Ronan - NH State Director
