Rottenberg was most recently National Get Out the Vote (GOTV) Director for the Biden-Harris campaign, where she focused on readying headquarters and state campaigns for fall turnout efforts. Her work to craft early vote messaging, adapt to virtual campaigning, and align digital and organizing departments around shared goals helped turn out a record-setting 81 million voters for President Biden and Democrats in 2020. Rottenberg has served in leadership roles on other campaigns, as well, including as Senator Elizabeth Warren’s State Director in the 2020 Iowa Caucuses, where her organization was recognized for its grassroots enthusiasm, integrated voter contact strategy, and online and offline presence in a hyper-competitive primary. Between campaigns, she helped design and launch the advocacy program of Patients for Affordable Drugs, an organization elevating personal stories in the fight to lower the cost of prescription drugs. She also worked in the Biden Administration as White House Liaison for AmeriCorps. She got her start in politics as a field organizer for President Obama’s campaign in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2008.
