Politics West: Meet the Players

DNCC Deputy CEO for Public Affairs Jenni Engebretsen was featured in Politics West under the headline Meet the Players. Below are some samples of the Q&A, click here to see the rest of the questions.

Q: What’s your job here?

A: I’m the Deputy CEO, Public Affairs for the Democratic National Convention Committee – which means I head up the press, online communications and public programs teams for the committee planning and organizing the convention in Denver.

Q: Any advice for your counterpart at the Republican National Convention?

A: There’s no question that the calendar ahead lends itself to heightened energy around the 2008 conventions. The back-to-back speeches offered from Denver and then St. Paul will be in essence the first debate between the nominees – a debate that will in turn kick off the home-stretch sprint to the election.

So with that in mind, I guess I’d say: Get ready. We intend to set the bar high.
