Today, Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced that Luis Miranda will return to the Democratic National Committee as Communications Director at the beginning of October. Miranda has a long record of public service and as a Democratic communications strategist, and previously ran a 50-state regional communications program at the DNC for then-Chairman Howard Dean.
Most recently Luis worked as a strategic communications consultant based in Washington, DC with a variety of advocacy clients. From 2009 through 2013 Luis served as a spokesperson and Director of Hispanic Media for President Barack Obama at the White House, playing a key role in developing the Administration’s messaging on immigration reform and border security.
Luis began his career working for then-Minority Leader Dick Gephardt and then-Chairman Patrick Kennedy at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), served as a spokesman for then-Senator John Kerry during his presidential campaign, and ran a 50-state regional communications program for then-Chairman Howard Dean at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), helping Democrats recapture Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008. He also worked for the 2000 Gore campaign in Florida, including on operations for the Florida recount.
