Biden campaign builds up communications team with 4 new hires

President Biden’s reelection campaign added four members to its communications team, The Hill has learned exclusively.

The campaign hired Mia Ehrenberg as a national spokesperson, Charles Lutvak as a national spokesperson, Fabiola Rodriguez as deputy director of Hispanic media and Katarina Flicker as deputy director of strategic communications. The new hires will start their roles in the coming weeks and will all be based at campaign headquarters in Wilmington, Del.

In its announcement, the campaign took a dig at former President Trump’s campaign for lagging in fundraising as the Biden-Harris operation has been able to build and grow its team.

“Team Biden-Harris continues to build out its communications shop and prepare for a hard-fought general election as Donald Trump hides at Mar a Lago and can’t afford to put together the infrastructure or team to compete this fall,” according to the campaign.

Ehrenberg was previously press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security and was focused on Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas’s impeachment proceedings. Before that, she was communications director for former Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.).

Lutvak was previously principal deputy press secretary to New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D), and Rodriguez was the press secretary for Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. Rodriguez also was deputy national press secretary and Hispanic media adviser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee during the 2020 cycle.

Flicker was previously deputy press secretary for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and worked on the press team for Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D-Ga.) 2022 senatorial campaign.

“We’re excited to have these skilled and accomplished communicators join the talented and relentless team in Wilmington and across the battleground states that continue to communicate President Biden and Vice President Harris’ vision for a future with more freedoms and where democracy is protected — and that will make Donald Trump a loser again this November,” Michael Tyler, communications director, said in a statement.

The new additions come after a strong February for the Biden campaign, during which they raised roughly $53 million for a total of $155 million in cash on hand entering March.
