During this critical election cycle, two top campaign officials had another big priority on their plates: their weddings.  

The election season has been whirlwind for campaigners on both sides of the aisle. As Republicans work hard to hold onto the House, Rob Simms is also working hard  to plan his big day.  

On Saturday, the National Republican Congressional Committee ’s executive director will marry Cindy Boyd in in Old Town, Alexandria.  

Boyd works for the House Committee on Homeland Security as its director of member services and coalitions. The two got engaged on Thanksgiving Day last year.  

“There’s an old saying in campaigns and warfare that nothing good happens without a plan,” Simms said. “Fortunately for us — me — my fiancee is not only attractive and smart, but also super-organized.”  

According to the groom, wedding plans have been set for months.  

“[This] has allowed us to enjoy our engagement and avoid a lot of the stress and anxiety that can come with planning and being in a wedding, let alone one during a crazy election year,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sadie Weiner  is a fresh newly wed trying to flip the Senate for Team Blue.  

On February 14, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ’s communications director married Zach Wineburg in her hometown of Dallas, Texas.  

Wineburg is having a busy election year himself; the groom works for Google and is on the Democratic elections marketing team  

“Planning a wedding and being in cycle wasn’t always the most fun,” Weiner said. But, the two made it work.  

“Being organized and splitting up the wedding to-do list helped,” she said.  

Let’s see what November holds for Simms and Weiner, the two campaign staffers who may have just proved that you can do it all.
