He is also the founder of Blue Ox Strategies, a political consulting, public affairs and lobbying company, and currently runs the Minneapolis office of New Partners, another political consultancy.

Biden led the pool of Democratic presidential candidates in a recent Hill-HarrisX poll with 28 percent support. 

According to the Biden campaign, the hiring is part of a larger push to gain traction in Super Tuesday states. The campaign also announced a new Colorado state director, Rachel Caine, on Monday.

“We are building a talented and dynamic Super Tuesday team across the country, and we are excited to welcome ... Corey to the team as we strengthen the diverse coalition Joe Biden is building across the country,” said Molly Ritner, the campaign’s director of Super Tuesday states, in a statement. 

Minnesota's DFL supporters will cast their votes for their preferred presidential candidates on Super Tuesday, Mar. 3.
