Hurwitz has written speeches for every 21st-century Democratic presidential nominee. She started her career in 1998 as an intern for then-vice president Al Gore. She worked on John Kerry’s failed 2004 presidential campaign, and then in 2007, Hurwitz started the election cycle as the chief speechwriter for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Hurwitz was behind Clinton’s famous 2008 concession speech, where she thanked her supporters for putting “18m cracks” in the “highest, hardest glass ceiling”.
