'Hundreds' of Clinton staffers transition to DNC payroll

As Democrats turn to the general election, "hundreds" of staffers from Hillary Clinton's campaign have begun to transition to the payroll at the Democratic National Committee, according to spokesman from the campaign and the Democratic committee.

The transition, which began in May, includes staffers who one Clinton aide said "are working in jobs that benefit the entire ticket, not just Hillary Clinton." The aide added that the change will impact "hundreds of people across the country," including staff at Clinton's headquarters in Brooklyn.

The move is yet another signal that the Clinton's primary campaign against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is officially over and that the former secretary of state is wholly turning her focus to the general election campaign and Donald Trump.

The Hill reported on Wednesday that "a majority" of Clinton's staff "has transitioned immediately to the payroll at the Democratic National Committee." A Clinton aide denies that report, arguing that the transition will not include a majority of staff and was not starting this week.

1. I thought winning California and Washington DC, the last two primaries, was the signal

2. shockingly, the nominee's campaign and the national party integrate operations.

 

just like they've done in every other election cycle.

Surprising no one.

9. Ya know, ANY campaign can coordinate on things like...

 

registration, GOTV efforts, donor lists, etc. This is how party politics WORK.

10. coordinating on messaging when one is not the nominee seems different, at least to me.

12. Bernie's isolation from the DNC has been his own choice.

 

Even now, he treats the party like an enemy. I'm not sure what people expected?

21. I don't expect a campaign to be coordinating messaging with a primary candidate in May of 2015.

That is what I don't expect.

23. Why not? Why didn't Bernie do it too?

 

I want to beat the fucking Republicans. I want the party to actually support that. That's what parties are for!

24. Because this was may of 2015 and coordinating messaging is showing favoritism to a campaign

that is not yet nominated by the party voters.

Have the last word though, I'm not going to explain this any more.

18. Did you read the ***last may***? As in, May of 2015 !

Nobody would object to coordinating messaging in May of 2016, as it was clear by that point she would be the nominee (barring some extraordinary happening)

8. I don't think super PACs are allowed to shift their staffers over to campaigns / national committees

There is a cooling off period.

7. Brings back memories of her supporters mocking Bernie for laying off workers.

 

There she was shifting her responsibility. Think about it. The DNC makes calls to all Dems encouraging everyone to help all Dems when in fact the donations are going to one fat cat politician who already is fed by the mega corporations. Just how much money does it take to get such an honorable person elected? This is infuriating.

11. Has this practice infuriated you about every presidential election?

 

Or is this Hillary specific infuriation?

15. The election was not over.

 

It would be wrong of any candidate to do this if they had not won the election. Your logic is unbecoming of an adult. Right is right and wrong is wrong and that is what is disturbing about the Clinton's. They are ALWAYS at the line or over it. Responding with shoulders shrugged and a slight frown questioning why everyone always picks on them.

20. Has been over since sanders started talking about switching super delegates

 

He only started talking about that since it became mathematically impossible for him to win with the actual voters.

22. it was obvious to everyone outside the Bernie Bubble on April 27 that she was the nominee

 

it was also obvious to anyone paying attention that she was going to be the nominee on April 20, and really on March 16 as well.
