Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, Aaron Ford announced that his campaign for Nevada attorney general will be managed by Peggy Yang, an experienced leader with an extensive background in successful Democratic campaigns.
“Peggy’s knowledge on the issues, strong organizing skills and her experience helping Democrats secure tough victories across the country makes her the perfect choice to lead our campaign to victory in 2018,” said Ford. “I couldn’t be more excited to have her as campaign manager.”
Yang most recently worked for Senate Majority PAC where she led research operations at the leading Democratic U.S. Senate super PAC and its affiliated 501(c)(4).
“I am honored to join Aaron Ford’s campaign,” Yang said. “I have admired Senator Ford’s fight for working families in the Nevada legislature and I look forward to helping him take that fight to the Nevada attorney general's office.”
Yang also gained significant experience in management, research and communications during her time as Research Director for the Chris Murphy for Senate race in Connecticut, in addition to working for the DNC on President Obama’s re-election campaign.
“Nevadans deserve an attorney general who will bring integrity to the office and who will always put the safety and interest of working families first,” Yang continued. “I will lead an effective and aggressive campaign to ensure Aaron Ford can restore the faith of those who believe the system is rigged against them.”
