Last night, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn beat Craig Huey in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Rep. Jane Harman in California’s 36th District.
We are proud to have been a part of such an amazing campaign team, overcoming a 16-person field in the May 17 special election, then beating Craig Huey in the run-off, despite nearly a million dollars in self-funding from our opposition. Congratulations to Janice and the entire campaign team.
We produced aggressive television ads to generate earned media and shape the narrative of the race, while recommending a heavy mail campaign to target voters in a relatively low-turnout election. Working with a talented and experienced campaign team, including Campaign Manager Dave Jacobson, Pollster John Fairbank, and Consultant John Shallman, the strategy paid off.
We’re excited to be sending Janice’s strong voice to Congress.
A special thanks to Tom Rossmeissl from our firm who managed the television ad production for the campaign, and Sterling Clifford who runs our California office. This win is especially gratifying for our firm, as it was our first campaign in California since our work in helping elect Jerry Brown as Governor.
