Sanders' Iowa State Director Misty Rebik describes the campaign's strategy as the Iowa Caucus rapidly approaches. This is Rebik's first work on a presidential campaign. She was hired by the Sanders campaign in March 2019. Prior to working for the 2018 Sanders campaign, Rebik worked as the event and stewardship coordinator One Iowa, regional director of strategic partnerships and development for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, executive director of the Center for Worker Justice of Eastern Iowa. Her previous campaign experience was working as campaign manager for Cathy Glasson's (D) gubernatorial primary campaign in 2018.

Part of the youtube transcript of the interview:

So Misti tell

us a little bit about your strategy for impeachment of course the senator is gonna be locked up here in DC six days a week possibly even all the way up to the Iowa caucuses have spoken to some senior members of the campaign here in the studio but as an Iowa State Director yourself what's your plan in order to deal with that yeah sure well look um we stay very busy whether the senator is in the state or not we're having organizing house parties almost a couple times a week in every single County across the state we're doing live streams for Cheney we're training our volunteers to be ready for caucus night.

So to be very honest with you we're sort of in the last couple weeks here where all we need to be doing is getting out there and talking to as many people as possible making sure that our supporters and volunteers are trained up and ready for caucus night you may know there's almost 1,700 precincts in the state and our plan is to have more than one volunteer at every single one representing the campaign ready to bring home a victory on February 3rd so what we're doing obviously is we have a big goals number this month we're getting out there knocking as many doors as possible getting people plugged into our caucus training strategy.

But also we have an advantage I think that I'm very proud of in this campaign there are famous folks and very influential folks all across the country who support senator Sanders and they will be coming into the state to help us keep that energy high and the momentum rolling forward in the caucus day.

Well and as you look to make that closing argument here really in the final days of really just two weeks to go more or less I saw the campaign released a new ad let's take a look.

That compassion and justice and decency not only will we win this election but together we will transform this country with the pain that one person feels if we have children who are hungry in America if we have elderly people who can't afford their prescription drugs you know what that impacts you that he packs me we are all in this together
