Sanders allies helping former Clinton staff find jobs

The firm responsible for much of Bernie Sanders’s digital efforts is lending a hand to former Hillary Clinton staffers looking to find work. 

Revolution Messaging, the group that helped Sanders take on Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary, is reaching out to help Clinton staffers land on their feet after the surprise upset loss to Republican Donald Trump, pointing them toward jobs to help the progressive movement. The group hopes they will be able to find employment through its job portal, Progressive.Work
 
{mosads}“Now more than ever, the progressive community needs these experienced campaigners to continue the fight,” Sam Lozier, Revolution Messaging’s senior vice president of client services, said in a statement. 
 
“While we originally launched [Progressive.Work] to help our friends coming off the Sanders campaign, we hope to help Clinton campaign staff and other campaigners now and well beyond 2016.”
 
Clinton’s loss caught the political world by surprise, leaving thousands of Democrats who were expecting to vie for positions in a friendly administration suddenly without job prospects. 
 
Now, with Republicans set to control both Congress and the White House, Democrats are heading back to the drawing board to chart the party’s direction.
 
The race for the Democratic National Committee chair will shape that new direction. A handful of Democratic politicians are seeking the spot, with Sanders endorsing Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison.
