A New Generation



We always hear that politics is not a young man's game.

We always hear that the GOP is too old and out of touch.

Campaigning 101



You can't have 'fun' without 'da mentals.'

The blocking and tackling of political campaigning still works, and it works well. Expensive glossy mailers, slick TV ads, and jaw-dropping budgets for your mass communications are nice, but nothing beats good ole'-fashioned pressing the flesh.

Money Talks. People Vote. Activists Persuade.

Building a volunteer army allows you to maximize every second of time you have left before election day. But it is more than just numbers, you need to make sure your volunteers are effective messengers for your cause.

The Biggest Upset in American History


June 10th 2014 the world changed.

Dave Brat upset then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a stunning upset in the Republican Primary. Never in the history of the United States of America had a House Majority Leader been defeated in a primary.

I was Dave Brat's Campaign Manager from Day One, and together, we changed the course of history. Despite being outspent over 40:1 (likely more if you include outside money), we managed to beat Eric Cantor by a tally of 55.5 to 45.5, an 11 point margin of victory.

No incumbent will ever feel totally safe again.
