Biden for President

(page updated April 8, 2021)        

Headquarters: Philadelphia, PA.
Attention Readers: This page is the general election edition. After a period of quiescence in March/April 2020 the campaign picked up its activity in late April, when it started showing more of an orientation towards the general election.  On April 24 the campaign's joint fundraising agreement with the DNC went into effect, on April 29 the campaign announced addition of another deputy campaign manager, on April 30 the campaign announced the vice presidential selection committee, and in the first part of May the campaign made more staff additions.  In the latter part of June the campaign started adding state leadership staff, and throughout July and August many more staff were added and at the national level a pod structure developed.  In building out the national team and the state teams during the summer, the campaign brought on many staffers who had worked on campaigns of Biden's former rivals.   Additionally there was a strong emphasis on diversity, with many people of color and women joining the campaign.  On Aug. 11 the vice presidential team was added.  In Sept. the campaign added a bunch of state directors in non-battleground states.  Ultimately Biden for President had 875-plus staff; due to the pandemic most national staff worked remotely.  On top of the Biden staff, the Democratic National Committee coordinated campaign added about 3,000 staff.  Through August the national convention committee worked closely with the campaign. Separate from the campaign, the transition team was at work.  Also see the primary election edition, which covers the first year of the campaign from launch in April 2019 through the contested primaries to end of April 2020Note: Actively working to make this page better.  Suggestions/input/additions/corrections would be greatly appreciated.  Strictly on background.  Help make it better!  Email action08 @  gmail

IN THE STATES

The campaign focused on 17 battleground states.  In the latter part of June the campaign started adding state leadership staff in these key states.  Due to the pandemic the campaign's field efforts in the states were virtual, mainly phonebanking and texting, through to the end of September.  The campaign did start experimenting a bit with in-person events in the latter part of August; in particular there were a number of drive-in watch events around the convention, and the campaign resumed candidate travel at the end of August and after Labor Day.  In Sept. the campaign added a bunch of state directors in non-battleground states.  On Oct. 1 the AP reported, "Biden this weekend will dispatch several hundred newly trained volunteers to engage voters across Nevada, Michigan, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. The effort, focusing on voters who are considered difficult to reach by phone, is expected to spread into several more battleground states and include many more volunteers in the next few days and weeks."  In the pandemic environment, national headquarters set the rules on what the state campaign organizations could do.  At the state level, as one operative put it, the leadership was "hyperfocused on navigating the balance between virtual and in-person campaigning."  There was variation among the states depending on the severity of the pandemic and state and local regulations, but the focus was on keeping people safe.
