Interview with Maggie Moran


Maggie Moran has a long history in New Jersey and national politics, first serving as the Director of Rapid Response for President Bill Clinton’s campaign in 1996 and later as the New Jersey Campaign Manager for Vice President Al Gore’s presidential run in 2000. Moran then ran future New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey’s coordinated campaign in 2001, followed by managing U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg’s 2002 reelection campaign. After managing Governor Jon Corzine’s coordinated campaign in 2005, Maggie Moran served as Deputy Chief of Staff under Governor Corzine from 2006 until 2009, serving as one of Governor Corzine’s closest advisers on a variety of issues. She left the administration to manage Governor Corzine’s 2009 reelection campaign.

Following the Corzine reelection effort, Moran served as a senior advisor to then Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s governor’s race and began her own national consulting firm, Kivvit. At the time of the interview, Moran was managing partner of the firm and also co-taught a course on political campaigning with Mike Duhaime, a Republican counterpart, at the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
