Hillary Clinton has hired two former aides from her 2016 presidential campaign to join "Onward Together," a political action committee working to advance the platform that the former secretary of state campaigned on, according to a report on Friday.
Emmy Ruiz and Adam Parkhomenko will be joining the PAC, after having performed key roles during Clinton's campaign. Ruiz served as state director in Nevada during the primary and Colorado during the election; Parkhomenko served as Clinton's director of grassroots engagement.
The Onward Together co-founder, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, confirmed to BuzzFeed that the two would be joining the PAC.
"She's [Ruiz] moving us right on task, which is what we really needed," Dean told BuzzFeed.
Parkhomenko and Ruiz will reportedly work alongside big name Clinton aides such as former campaign vice chair Huma Abedin, finance director Dennis Cheng, and press secretary Nick Merrill.
