CARBONDALE, ILL.--Becky Carroll, deputy chief-of-staff for Gov. Blagojevich--and a campaign veteran--will lead the bulked up Obama presidential campaign drive for women voters, conceeding no turf--or gender--to chief rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.).
The "Women for Obama" department has been perculating---Michelle Obama is the chair--and has an active organization in California, where a kick off lunch/fund-raiser was held a few weeks ago.
Hat tip to Bernie Schoenberg of from the Springfield Journal-Register who scooped this.
Carroll also put in time in Mayor Daley's City Hall.and Daley mayoral campaigns.
