Political consultants experimented, innovated and delivered for their clients,” said Rose Kapolczynski, AAPC President. “The record-breaking number of entries demonstrates that competition was tough in an election cycle that saw more money raised for campaigns than ever before. While the work might have been done at the kitchen table, with dogs barking in the background and a video chat that wouldn’t end, consultants made it happen for campaigns at every level. Huge congratulations to all the winners for being recognized for their contributions.”
