Veteran political consultant Hank Sheinkopf has been hired by the state Democratic Party, Chairman Jay Jacobs confirmed today.
As Democrats defend holding onto every statewide position and expand their narrow 32-29 majority in the Senate, the party is turning to the prominent New York City strategist who has advised Eliot Spitzer, Bill Clinton and Mark Green. He is also the founder of Sheinkopf Communications. There is no word how much Sheinkopf will be paid for his services.
“The New York State Democratic Committee has retained veteran political consultant Hank Sheinkopf to assist with communications strategy and rapid response during this election season,” Jacobs said in a statement.
