Anthony Weiner Hires Campaign Manager

Expected to announce candidacy for mayor of New York City soon


Anthony Weiner's new campaign manager for his nascent mayoral bid is a recent Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee adviser who spent four months working on a failed Staten Island congressional race last year, two sources familiar with the hire told POLITICO.

Danny Kedem, who worked on Mark Murphy's congressional run in New York's 11th District last year, has been brought on as Weiner's campaign manager for a race he is likely to announce next week, according to multiple sources. Kedem's resume includes a handful of other congressional runs and mayoral races, as well as field organizing work on Hillary Clinton's presidential run.
