Prominent Clinton & Obama Campaign Officials Killed in Car Crash

Two high-profile Democrat political figures have been killed in a car accident in Southern California.

Peggy Moore, 60, and Hope Wood, 48, both from San Francisco, California, were prominent officials who both worked on the election campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

They were traveling westbound in a Jeep Gladiator when they collided head-on with a Chrysler 300 that veered into oncoming traffic, according to SF Gate.

The crash killed Wood, Moore, the Jeep’s driver, and the Chrysler’s driver, 60, according to KNTV.

However, a third passenger, who was journeying with Wood and Moore, survived the accident.

Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the shocking crash.

Offials are looking into the possibility of whether alcohol or drugs were involved in the incident, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported.

The only crash victim named by the medical examiner was Moore, but tributes online quickly revealed that both women had been killed.

Moore and Wood were longtime East Bay political leaders.

They became partners after meeting each other while working on former U.S. President Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008, according to SF Gate.

The Daily Mail reported that Moore, in particular, had the reputation of being a “giant” in California political circles.

In 2019, the duo founded the political consulting firm Hope Action Change.

The orgnaization focused on issues relating to women of color and homosexual relationships.

According to KNTV, Moore was also instrumental in running in the 2014 election campaign of former Oakland Democrat Mayor Libby Schaaf.

In addition, she worked as a senior consultant on Democrat District Attorney Diana Becton’s campaign in Contra Costa County.

Moore also worked for Hilary Clinton’s primary campaign in California.

“Saddened by the tragic passing of Peggy Moore,” California Democratic Party Chair Rusty Hicks said in a post on X.

Moore “was an incredible political talent & member of Team CADEM who brought a passion for organizing & a commitment to justice every single day,” Hicks added.

“Together they organized, changed hearts and minds, and helped to create a world where who you love doesn’t limit your freedoms,” Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee wrote on X.

“Both Peggy and Hope made an impact on our community, on our city, on our state, and on our nation that will be felt for generations to come.”

The East Bay Stonewall Democratic Club wrote in a statement shared on the social media platform that the organization was “devastated to hear of the passing of our past President Peggy Moore” and Hope Wood.

The organization called Moore “a force of change in Oakland and the East Bay.”

“​​Moore was dedicated to enhancing the visibility and civil rights of Oakland’s LGBT community and communities of color, as well as creating a vibrant and livable city for all Oakland residents,” the organization said.
