Large parts of the party committee are being relocated from Washington to Chicago to be better integrated with Obama’s campaign.

DNC spokeswoman: “…Political, field and constituency operations are moving to Chicago to work in the Obama headquarters. The goal is to consolidate these efforts into one operation and effectively drive one national strategy.”

Politico: “The move reflects Obama’s desire to maintain an unusually streamlined campaign, as well as his swift and complete takeover of a Democratic Party that isn’t always known for its unity.”
