“In 2012, Martha’s leadership was a crucial reason Democrats not only held the majority, but picked up seats in the Senate, and I am confident she knows exactly what we need to do to win again in 2014,” Cecil continued.
McKenna worked as political director at the DSCC during the 2008 and 2010 cycles, helping elect a crop of senators now facing their first re-elections. Before that, McKenna spent a decade at EMILY’s List, which works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights.
A Baltimore resident with a broad range of campaign experience at all levels, McKenna is now a partner at the media firm McKenna Pihlaja. She also co-founded Emerge Maryland, which recruits and trains Democratic women running for state and local office.
