    WASHINGTON — Mindy Myers, the chief of staff to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, will move to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee next month, where she’s going to help the party’s efforts to regain Senate control.

    “Mindy has been wonderful and I can’t overstate the positive influence she’s had over the last four years,” said Warren in an interview with the Globe. “I’m incredibly grateful to Mindy — for helping me win the Senate seat and for working every day to help me use this seat to level the playing field for hard-working families.”

    Warren said Myers still will be “part of the team” and continue advising her as a consultant.

    In her new role, Myers will oversee tens of millions of dollars the campaign committee spends on Senate races. Democrats hope they can take back the majority in the Senate in 2016 when 34 seats are up for election, including seven held by the GOP in states President Obama won in 2012. Democrats need a net gain of five seats to retake the chamber.
