Ben LaBolt, press secretary for the campaign, confirmed her appoint via twitter.
Archuleta would be the first Latina in that position on a major political campaign. Archuleta, currently the chief of staff to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, is expected to start her job “within days,” a campaign source says.
Archuleta was the former executive director of the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation. She is co-founder of Semilla Group, a women’s consulting group that focuses on community development.
In her new role, she will also help with Hispanic Outreach and communication with elected officials and groups, according to The Denver Post.
