Dan Bishop Victorious in North Carolina Race
Innovative Politics served as media advisers in Congressional primary and general elections.
Following a commanding victory in the North Carolina Congressional primary, Innovative Politics’ client Dan Bishop was officially elected to Congress Tuesday, adding another “W” to the company’s winning record.
Bishop defeated Democrat Dan McCready in what many called the most closely watched special election in the country, holding 50.8 percent of the vote in the four-candidate field for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District. As with the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, the Innovative Politics team served as media advisers for Bishop’s campaign, crafting messaging, developing and placing more than $1.5 million in television ads to set the tone for the race.
In April, Innovative Politics caught the attention of news media across North Carolina and the nation with the first television ad it produced for Bishop, “Crazy Clowns.” The ad offered sharp criticism of several prominent Democratic lawmakers, while also demonstrating Bishop’s alliance with President Trump and his hard-line stance against the increasingly radical policies of Congressional Democrats.

In another Innovative Politics-produced ad, titled “Right Dan,” Bishop further distinguished himself from McCready by tying his opponent to the extreme socialist wing of his party, which often disregard the true wishes and needs of his constituents.

“Tonight is a victory shared by all who believe in the promise of America; in the promise of American exceptionalism and the promise of freedom and opportunity,” Bishop said in his victory speech.
“I know Dan Bishop will do great things for the people of North Carolina, and we’re proud to have played a role in the campaign,” said Jay Connaughton, owner and managing partner of Innovative Politics. “Our team showcased their commitment to creativity and excellence throughout this race, and that was evidenced through the nationally-recognized and widely discussed ads we produced.”
