CHICAGO (CNN) – Camp Edwards is touting a new member of its Hawkeye state team.
Iowa political operative Jeff Link will join the former North Carolina senator's campaign as an "adviser on strategy and message." Link, who will not be on the payroll, was a longtime aide to Iowa Senator Tom Harkin and managed his re-election campaign in 2002.
Link also served as a strategist for the short-lived presidential bid of former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack. Vilsack has endorsed New York Sen. Hillary Clinton's White House bid.
