Who is Mike Henry?

Mike Henry is an American political strategist and current Chief of Staff to United States Senator Tim Kaine.

In 2011, former Gov. Kaine tapped him to run his Senate campaign. From 2009 to 2011, he was senior director of U.S. Field of Bono's The ONE Campaign, a global advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and working with political leaders to support effective policies and programs that save lives. He was responsible for guiding strategic grassroots initiatives. He worked to create political will in key congressional districts for bipartisan global poverty and disease-fighting legislation, helped expand ONE’s grassroots membership, mobilized bi-partisan political and business leaders, and raised awareness of global poverty issues.

Henry also worked in national-level politics, serving as deputy chief of staff of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, famously writing a memo that was later leaked to The New York Times outlining a controversial strategy suggesting that Clinton skip Iowa, a politically risky move.
