Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Manager
Robert E. “Robby” Mook is Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager for the 2016 US presidential elections campaign.
Mook was born on December 3, 1979, and is from Sharon in Vermont; however, he was raised in Norwich, a town in the state’s Windsor County.
The 36-year-old American political campaign strategist has a rich professional experience and started his career at a very young age. He was just 14-years-old when he volunteered to work on former Vermont State Rep. Matt Dunne’s re-election campaign.
After graduating from Columbia University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in Classics, Mook served as a United States Senate Page. He later worked for the Vermont Democratic Party.
In 2004, Mook became the field director for Howard Dean’s presidential campaign. He later joined the Democratic National Committee and in the 2008 US presidential election season worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign as a state director in three states – Ohio, Indiana, and Nevada.
As Hillary Clinton failed to get the nomination, Mook became Jeanne Shaheen’s campaign manager who won the US Senate by a margin of six per cent.
In 2009, Mook joined the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as their political director. In 2010, he became the independent expenditure director.
Following the Democrats loss in the 2010 House of Representatives elections, Mook was named executive director.
In 2013, he became the campaign manager of Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign.
In January 2015, Mook, along with Joel Benenson, was hired by Hillary Clinton as strategist for the 2016 US presidential election.
