Company: New Politics

About New Politics:

Now, more than ever, we need leaders committed to putting country before party, and service before self. Republican or Democrat, our democracy, and our country, desperately need our best leaders running for office – ones who forged their skills serving the country – to restore faith and trust throughout our politics. 

New Politics was founded in 2013 to transform government by recruiting, developing, and electing servant leaders with the highest caliber of integrity, courage, and empathy. At a time when the number of service veterans in Congress is at an all-time low, New Politics is working to help servant leaders overcome the traditional barriers to entering the political arena. 

New Politics recruits, develops, incubates, elects, and advises candidates and their campaigns. We are there to support our candidates throughout the entirety of their journey. In the last three cycles, we have helped 164 campaigns across eight levels of government, winning 122 primary and 75 general elections on both sides of the aisle.
