Joint Center Commends Senator-Elect Doug Jones on Hiring of Black Chief of Staff

This afternoon Senator-elect Doug Jones (D-AL) announced Dana Gresham as his chief of staff. 
 
In selecting Mr. Gresham, Senator-elect Jones will have the only African American chief of staff in the Senate's Democratic caucus. 
 
Although African Americans account for 23% of Democratic voters, before this announcement they accounted for just 1% of top Democratic Senate staff.
