Wolff, Crider take top jobs at DCCC
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Big news at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Brian Wolff, who currently serves as the DCCC's deputy executive director, will become the new executive director in the 110th Congress.
Wolff is credited with playing a key role in helping devise the campaign strategy Democrats employed in their successful effort to wrest control of the House from Republicans for the first time in 12 years.
Wolff will be joined at the DCCC by one of incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, D-California, top aides. Jennifer Crider, who is widely respected by the Capitol Hill press corps, will head the DCCC's press shop as communications director. Wolff and Crider will work for Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the new DCCC chairman.
