Linda Moore, a 25-year veteran of presidential campaigns, The White House, and Capitol Hill, is a senior strategist known for playing crucial roles for high profile leaders. Prior to joining TechNet, she was the founder and President of LMF Strategies, a public affairs consulting firm.
Linda served for a decade as Senior Advisor to Indiana Senator Evan Bayh, helping to establish the Senator’s profile as a national leader for centrist Democrats. Linda took two leaves of absence during her tenure with Senator Bayh to work on presidential campaigns. In 2004, she was recruited by the John Kerry for President campaign to serve as Political Director for the vice-presidential nominee. In 2008, during its most critical and tumultuous period in the primaries, the Hillary Clinton for President campaign brought in Linda to serve as Director of Congressional Affairs and as a member of the campaign’s strategic decision-making team.
Prior to the Senate, Linda served for eight years in the Clinton White House Office of Political Affairs, first as Special Assistant to the President, and in the second term as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Political Director. Linda took a leave in the fall of 1996 to serve as Deputy Political Director for the Clinton-Gore campaign, helping Clinton become the first Democrat since Franklin Roosevelt to win a second term as president.
Linda came to the White House from the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), the organization that developed much of Clinton’s campaign strategy and governing agenda. Serving for five years as its Field Director, Linda built a strong, cohesive organization that would later become the backbone of Clinton’s presidential campaign. The DLC’s success became a model for the New Labor movement in Great Britain and other progressive governments around the world.
In the fall of 2011, Linda was a Resident Fellow at Harvard Institute of Politics (IOP), where she led a weekly seminar on the decline of centrists and the increase of polarization in both parties and its impact on policy and politics. Linda now serves on Harvard IOP’s Fellows Alumni Advisory Council.
In March 2012, Linda was appointed by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the U.S. National Commission for the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Linda also frequently lectures on U.S. politics and governance to foreign audiences for the U.S. Department of State.
Linda, a native Texan, is a 1984 graduate of the University of Texas (UT), and a member of the Advisory Council of the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life at UT.
