Hillary Clinton's California campaign director, Buffy Wicks, and her husband, Peter, found out in early March she was pregnant with their first child. Due date: Nov. 8 -- Election Day.
Wicks, 39, jokes that her first thought was: "Do they have CNN in the delivery room?"
"This will be the first time I haven't been in a campaign boiler room on election night," Wicks said this week.
A veteran political strategist and native Californian, Wicks steered Clinton to a crucial victory in California's June primary, beating back a surging effort by Sen. Bernie Sanders. It earned her the name "Buffy the Bernie Slayer."
Working for Hillary Clinton this election cycle meant coming full circle after running Barack Obama's unsuccessful California primary campaign against Clinton in 2008.
