The Top Vote Getting Minority

Woman in America

We helped Eleni Kounalakis and Xavier Becerra become the first elected woman Lt. Governor and the first elected Latino Attorney General respectively in California history. As general consultants for the first Chinese American woman ever elected California Controller, our digital, mail and strategy lifted Betty Yee to a record-smashing re-election where she banked over 8 million votes, making her the top vote getter in the state — and the country. 

BaughmanMerrill mail, TV and digital also swept London Breed - the first African American woman ever — into San Francisco City Hall and led Kathleen Williams to a primary victory upset for Montana's at-large congressional seat despite a 6:1 cash disadvantage.

Creating Fight Back California PAC

We teamed up with centrist Democrat former Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher to create the Super PAC responsible for deploying aggressive, data-driven TV, media and digital campaigns in the longest Republican-held districts in California. The PAC's groundbreaking billboard campaign targeting Congressman Devin Nunes earned national press from CNN, The Hill and Politico.

 

Fight Back's record? 7 for 7 flipping congressional seats formerly won by Hillary Clinton but held by Republicans.

State House Districts

Our mail for the Ohio House Democratic Caucus flipped Republican seats in favor of Democrats for the first time since 2008. Our work protected three Democratic Ohio House seats in Trump-won legislative districts — including one Trump carried by more than 20 points — and flipped three more from red to blue.

 

In California, our mail on behalf of Tasha Boerner Horvath helped elect her as the first woman to ever represent a North County San Diego Assembly seat and turned it blue for the first time in decades.

In Orlando, BaughmanMerrill was part of the strategic team that turned the first Vietnamese American Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy's once dark red district to solid blue, crushing her state representative opponent by 15 points.
