Hillary Clinton presidential campaign

Hillary for Iowa — and America

June 2015 — August 2015

A fellow for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in Des Moines, James built tools to foster new insights into the Iowa caucus, assisted organizing events for Secretary Clinton and campaign surrogates, and helped organizers around the state be more effective knocking doors.



Developed mobile apps to be used during the Iowa caucus by volunteers to increase the effectiveness of precinct captains and drive data insights into the caucus process that had never before been accessible to campaigns.



Organized and setup campaign rallies and conversations for Secretary Clinton and surrogates throughout Iowa, and supported senior staff.



Wrote the campaign's beginners guide on VAN — a universally essential tool for Democrats running for office — for staff, organizers, and volunteers. It can create lists, call campaigns, shifts, track voter outreach efforts, and organize new volunteers.
