Anne Caprara Priorities USA Action

Caprara to lead Priorities USA

20 May, 2015

Caprara, the vice president of campaigns at Emily’s List, moves to Priorities USA as its executive director. That job was vacated this week by Buffy Wicks, a veteran of President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. Guy Cecil, who managed Mrs. Clinton’s 2008 campaign after a shake-up in that race, is coming into Priorities as the co-chairman of the board and the chief executive officer. His functional role will be chief strategist running the operation. He says:

Buffy has been a strong leader and smart strategist for Priorities and I have no doubt she will continue to be a valuable ally and supporter of Hillary Clinton.
Anne Caprara has led some of the toughest campaigns and was critical to the success of so many Senate races across the country. I have complete confidence in her leadership. My focus is on building a big tent for all of our work.

Stephanie Schriock, the head of Emily’s List and a former Priorities board member says:

While we will absolutely miss having Anne here at Emily’s List every day, I couldn’t be prouder to see her step up and lead Priorities. She’s had huge success in early recruitment and built a strong foundation for Democratic women up and down the ballot in 2016 – and I know she’s going to be the same kind of force of nature in her next role.
