Michael Blake, Vice Chair of the Democratic Committee, is coming to Virginia Beach to work with VBDC candidates, campaign staffs and volunteers as we go into high gear for the November election.  

After a career in journalism, Blake began his political career in the 2006 “Yes We Can” training program. He then managed three winning state legislative races in Michigan, became President Obama’s 2008 Iowa Caucus Constituency vote director, and served in eight additional states, including Michigan, where his team won all seven races as part of their Coordinated campaign. Blake later served as White House Associate Director of Public Engagement and Deputy Associate Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs.

In 2012, Blake was National Deputy Operation Vote Director for President Obama.  Blake currently is serving in his second term in the New York State Assembly, representing the Bronx’s 79th District.  Since becoming DNC vice chair this year, Blake has been traveling extensively across the country helping Democratic committees and candidates prepare for primary and general elections.

We are delighted for the opportunity to welcome Mike to Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads and look forward to his visit.  Here are two important events you don’t want to miss!
