Mindy Myers, chief of staff to RI Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, is leaving the Whitehouse office to become chief of staff in Washington for Massachusetts Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren.
Myers, 36, has proven in the last several election cycles that she is one of the Democratic Party’s top young political operatives. (The next Mary Beth Cahill?) Myers was campaign manager for Whitehouse in his 2006 upset of then-Republican incumbent Sen. Lincoln Chafee. In 2008, she was head of President Obama’s New Hampshire campaign.
