Cynthia Hogan has been Apple’s vice president of public policy and government affairs since 2016. Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has announced that she will join their team as an advisor (via WSJ).
The search for a running mate
Mr. Biden is looking for a group of experts to help him find a running mate in his candidacy for president. It will be led by several political allies, as well as Ms. Hogan, who was a White House and Senate advisor to Mr. Biden before traveling to Apple. These advisers will work with members of the Democratic Party as well as with networks of veteran monitoring teams.
I need someone who is going to be, as Barack said, “simpatico with me”, who is a real current partner and who is ready to be president at any time. There are many women who have the experience to do this job.
Biden says he wants to choose a woman as his vice president, and the decision is expected to be announced in July. Possibilities include former presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar.
