Political Forecast: 2008: Nevada hires two Iowa caucus experts to run their caucus
Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
... From the Las Vegas Sun: "The Nevada Democratic Party has tapped Jean Hessburg, former head of the Iowa Democratic Party, to run this state's early 2008 presidential caucus - and avoid some of the problems encountered in the party's 2004 caucus here. ... Hessburg will be assisted by Jayson Sime, another veteran of Iowa politics who headed Democratic Iowa Rep. Leonard Boswell's successful re-election campaign this year." Hessburg had been working as the executive director at the Iowa State Education Association, but I'm not sure what her present status is with the organization at this moment. I assume that she'll probably be moving after the holiday season, as it'd be pretty hard to pick her kids up and move during this busy month. I know that she and Sime had worked together in the past, but I'm surprised to see him go as well. It should be interesting to gauge Iowa reaction to both of them heading out west to help a state that could become a direct competitor for Iowa's first in the nation status.
