CNN has hired two veterans of the 2012 presidential election to talk politics throughout the broadcast day.
Strategists Stephanie Cutter, of the Barack Obama re-election campaign, and Kevin Madden, who worked for Mitt Romney, will "add their expert analysis to the network’s roster of voices and will appear across the network’s programming," according to a CNN press release
. That will include "New Day," the morning show launching June 17.
"I’ve worked with CNN for many years in the White House, on campaigns and throughout government," said Cutter. "They are the best in the business, and I’m thrilled to be joining the CNN team."
"This is such an exciting time in the national conversation about the direction of our country, with so many Americans looking to CNN for an informed perspective of today’s political debates," said Madden. "I’m looking forward to bringing my experience of working on national campaigns and Capitol Hill to CNN’s coverage of this national conversation."
Cutter is a partner in a consulting firm launched in early May with three other members of the Obama 2012 team. She was deputy campaign manager for Obama’s re-election campaign and has served Michelle Obama’s chief of staff and senior adviser to Obama when he was a senator.
Madden is the executive vice president of a public affairs firm in Washington, D.C. He was adviser for the Republican National Committee and Romney’s presidential campaign in 2012.
