Solomont With Obama

Alan Solomont, a former national finance director for the Democratic National Committee under President Clinton, is signing on to the campaign of Barack Obama. Solomont, who was formerly a top fundraiser with John Kerry, has a long history of ties to Senator Hillary Clinton. Despite these ties, he’s backing Obama. “I hope to play a leadership role here in New England,” Solomont told Gitell.Com. “My sense is that there is… a great advantage in being a new face and a new voice.
