Wallace to oversee the raising of millions of dollars for 2020 general election
Congresswoman Lauren Underwood has hired Rose Wallace to be her finance director for her 2020 reelection campaign.
Wallace was previously working for Senator Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign until it suspended its operation in early December.
Wallace introduced herself in social media with the following 3-part tweet transcribed below for easier reading:
“To those of you wondering where I shipped all my worldly possessions — I’m excited to announce that I’m moving to Chicagoland next week to be the Finance Director for Congresswoman Lauren Underwood’s re-election campaign!
“ICYMI: Lauren flipped the IL 14th district in 2018 and is already delivering results on issues like gun control, reproductive rights and healthcare costs drawing upon her lived experience as a nurse and health policy expert.
“While its sad to leave California after nearly 4 years here, I’m siked time to take the Midwest by storm, eat lots of deep dish, and make sure whatever Dem President is elected (God willing) in 2020 has a majority in the House.”Congresswoman Lauren Underwood’s new Finance Director Rose Wallace via Twitter 1/29/20
Wallace, who turned 26 earlier this month, is relocating from the Bay Area of northern California to the Midwest which she hopes to take “by storm”.
At last week’s congressional debate, Republican candidate State Senator Sue Rezin pointed out the general election for this congressional seat will likely be a $15 million race, given control of the House of Representatives is at stake with its outcome.
Ms. Wallace will be the one overseeing the Underwood portion of the $15 million in her high-level role as finance director.
