"Obama California campaign"
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is staffing up in California, naming veteran Democratic campaign strategist Mitchell Schwartz to be his state director.
Schwartz has worked on the campaigns of U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, former Gov. Gray Davis and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. He was New Hampshire state director for Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign and then worked in the State Department's Office of Public Affairs from 1993 to 1995.
He is founder and president of Bomaye Group, a Los Angeles public affair firm which, among other things, coordinated the grassroots and online campaign for Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth."
