Biden nabs big-name Latino operative in latest sign he's running
In the latest sign that Joe Biden will run for president, his team has brought on Cristóbal Alex, the head of the influential Latino Victory Fund, according to a source familiar with the move.
It’s not clear what role Alex would fill in a Biden presidential campaign. He served as Hillary Clinton’s National Deputy Director of Voter Outreach and Mobilization in 2016.
Alex declined to comment but publicly disclosed on Tuesday that he was departing from Latino Victory Fund. He tweeted that he believes “Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our nation. I am committed to doing everything in my power to defeat him, and my next steps will reflect that.”
The tweet sparked praise of Alex from many corners of the progressive world, including from Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez and newly elected Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas).
“@CristobalJAlex created an incredible legacy with @latinovictoryus, and it is because of his work and leadership that we now have more Latinx people in office all across this country,” Perez tweeted.
A representative for Biden did not respond to requests for comment.
The 76-year-old former vice president has been publicly weighing another White House run, saying last week that he was in the “final stages” of his decision-making and that he wants to be sure it would not be a “fool’s errand.”
He is currently leading or nearly leading in most polls of the Democratic primary, and has quietly been assembling a potential campaign team. His entry into the race would likely affect the decision-making of some other potential presidential candidates such as former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who see their appeal as ideologically or stylistically similar.
