Bernie Sanders Hires Top Progressive Advocate, Faiz Shakir, as Campaign Manager
Andrew Harnik/ShutterstockSen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has tapped Faiz Shakir to serve as his campaign manager for his second run at the White House, the Daily Beast has learned.

In hiring Shakir, Sanders brings into the fold one of the Democratic Party's better-travelled operatives—an official with limited campaign experience but with ties to the party's think tank infrastructure, its Hill operations and the larger progressive universe.

Shakir joins the Sanders operation from the American Civil Liberties Union where he served as national political director since early 2017. Before joining the ACLU, he was a senior adviser to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and before that he worked with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). He first made a name for himself as an editor at the site ThinkProgress, the news arm associated with, though editorially independent of, the powerhouse Democratic think-tank Center for American Progress.
