- Hillary Clinton Campaign
Hillary Clinton has hired an experienced operative to lead Hispanic media for her campaign, adding Harry Reid’s senior adviser for Latino media, Jorge Silva, the campaign has confirmed, the Yucatan Times reports. Silva, who starts working today, is the latest example of the campaign’s focus on bringing on Hispanic staffers and gives it a deeply experienced team in the crucial swing state of Nevada.He developed and implemented Hispanic media strategy in states like Colorado, New Mexico, and some parts of California, in addition to Nevada, as the senior strategist for the Senate Democratic Caucus. Nathaly Arriola, who worked with Silva under Reid and served on Obama’s Hispanic media team during his reelection campaign, said he has been behind the scenes for every major push the Democratic Party has engaged in when it comes to the Latino community during the last four to five years. She said the Obama campaign modeled their Hispanic strategy after Reid’s successful 2010 reelection with a focus on regional and district-specific approaches to Latino media — something the sprawling Clinton operation can make use of.
