(page updated May 8,
2020, also corrections/revisions July 22, 2020)
Attention Readers: This page is the primary election edition. It shows my understanding of the campaign from launch through the contested primaries to late April 2020, including national staff and the large organizations in the early states. Greg Schultz led the campaign for most of this time. On March 12, 2020, the campaign announced Jennifer O'Malley Dillon as campaign manager, signaling a turn towards the general election. The pandemic put a pause on growth in the latter part of March and April as staff worked remotely (+). Biden became the presumptive nominee on April 8. Suggestions/input/additions/corrections for this primary election edition page would be greatly appreciated. For my current understanding of the campaign, please see the presumptive nominee edition which picks up towards the end of April 2020.
