Joseph Jerry Andrew (born March 1, 1960) is an American politician and lawyer. He was national chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) from 1999 to 2001. He previously served as chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party from 1995 to 1999. He served with DNC General Chairman Ed Rendell. Asked to serve by President Bill Clinton, Andrew became, at the age of 39, one of the youngest chairpersons in the history of the DNC. He later served as chairman of the New Democratic Network, and in 2006 helped to found The Blue Fund, a mutual fund which invests in companies that contribute to Democratic campaigns. He now serves as the global chairman of Dentons, the world's largest law firm.[3]

Andrew was considered to be a candidate for Governor of Indiana in 2004, but he decided against it after Joe Kernan announced that he would run. [4] During the 2008 Democratic presidential nominating contest he was one of the first to endorse Senator Hillary Clinton in November 2007. However, on May 1, 2008, he switched his endorsement to Senator Barack Obama.[5]

Early life and education

Andrew grew up on a farm near Fort Wayne, Indiana. His parents divorced when he was young. His father was a doctor and his mother was a school teacher and entrepreneur.[6] Andrew graduated from Yale University in 1982 and Yale Law School in 1985.[3] While at Yale, he served as editor-in-chief of the Yale University literary review.[7]

Work in politics

Shortly after law school, Andrew began working on Democratic campaigns. He worked as the campaign manager for attorney Jack Wickes during the 1988 United States Senate election in Indiana.[7] He also served as campaign advisor to Secretary of State of Indiana Joseph H. Hogsett, whose term was from 1989 to 1994.[8]

Democratic National Committee

From 1999 to 2001, Andrew served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee. At the time he was one of the youngest people to serve in that capacity.[9]


Andrew joined the Washington DC office of the law firm of Sonnenschein Nath and Lowenthal LLP, now known as Dentons, in 2002.[10] He was named global chairman that same year.[9]
