Report: Hillary Considers Latina Pioneer for Key Campaign Post

By    |   Thursday, 26 Feb 2015 09:18 PM

Amanda Renteria, the first Latina chief of staff for a U.S. senator, is reportedly a top contender for the national political director post in a likely Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

According to Roll Call, the position would vault Renteria who previously worked for California Sen. Dianne Feinstein before becoming chief of staff for Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow near the top of Clinton's tight campaign hierarchy.

Renteria wouldn't comment on the prospect, but told Roll Call: "I’m thinking a lot about what’s next."

Renteria, the daughter of farm workers and a graduate of Harvard and Stanford, met with Clinton the second week of February in New York City, and Clinton is said to have loved her, BuzzFeed reports.

"I think it’s a big signal that Hillary knows she has to and is going to take the Latino community seriously," Matt Barreto, co-founder of polling firm Latino Decisions, tells Buzz Feed.

"Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are starting to position themselves as candidates that could siphon Latino support."

Renteria narrowly lost a bid to oust incumbent Republican Rep. David Valadao in California in the GOP wave election in November and Democrats had hoped she'd run again in a presidential election cycle that could be kinder to party candidates, Roll Call reports.
