Fox News political commentator and co-host of Fox News Radio’s “Benson and Harf” show Marie Harf will leave her post as a liberal voice on the conservative network to join a low-profile 2020 campaign, The Daily Beast reported.
Harf — who has previously worked on President Obama’s 2012 campaign, as a senior communications adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry and a Middle East analyst for the CIA — will join Rep. Seth Moulton’s (D-MA) campaign as a deputy campaign manager for policy and communications. While Moulton is not considered a 2020 frontrunner at the moment, he and Harf are a good fit.
During her time at Fox News, Harf has been critical of the Democratic establishment. As The Daily Beast noted, she criticized the Democratic National Committee in 2017 and suggested it should “rebuild its image before 2020.” Moulton saw a flurry of headlines in the fall of 2018 when he publicly opposed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bid for the speakership.
