Jen O'Malley Dillon is a star Democratic operative. Can she save Beto O'Rourke's candidacy?

The hiring of this woman, Jen O’Malley Dillon, is the one thing that’s unquestionably gone his way since his campaign launch in March. Nearly every other presidential candidate courted her. But she has chosen to move her husband, twin daughters and 15-month-old son two time zones to the west, from suburban Maryland to El Paso.

.......................

Obama has been in touch with O'Rourke, as he has been with other Democratic candidates. In December, The Washington Post reported the former president met with O'Rourke not long after the Senate campaign ended. Multiple sources tell the Tribune that the former president recommended O'Malley Dillon to O'Rourke. But just as tellingly, O'Malley Dillon received word that the former president thought she should take the job, according to two people with knowledge of the communication. A spokesman for Obama declined to comment.

“She is one of the best political operatives of my generation,” said C.R. Wooters, a longtime Democratic hand who is now a lobbyist. “She is an organizer at heart, brilliant and unflappable. She’s also a stone-cold killer when necessary.”

“Sometimes I get asked for career advice from young organizers," he said. "If the conversation turns to the Beto campaign, I immediately tell them that working for Beto means working with Jen, and that is not an opportunity they should pass up. It's usually followed up with something like, ‘Do whatever she tells you.’”
