Joe Biden's campaign is adding six senior staff members to focus on attracting women and minority voters.

Why it matters: Biden and his team hope this diverse staff can help them rebuild the diverse coalition that Barack Obama captured in 2008.

Who he's hired:

  • Laura Jiménez will be Latinx National Vote Director.
  • Amit Jani is Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) National Vote Director.
  • Carissa Smith is Women's National Vote Director.
  • Erika Dinkel-Smith is Director of Labor Engagement.
  • Trey Baker National is Director of African American Engagement.
