One of the key figures who brought about the election of Doug Jones in Alabama was his masterful campaign manager, Joe Trippi.
Trippi managed to run a campaign that was brilliant in execution.
Trippi is well versed in Democratic campaigns for office, not successful on a regular basis as with Jones, but he is well regarded for his campaign strategies.
Among those he assisted in various campaigns for public office are:
Minnesota Senator and Vice President Walter Mondale and his Presidential campaign in 1984.
Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy and his Presidential campaign in 1980.
Colorado Senator Gary Hart and his Presidential campaign in 1988.
California Governor Jerry Brown and his Presidential campaign in 1992 and gubernatorial campaign in 2010.
North Carolina Senator John Edwards and his 2008 Presidential campaign.
Missouri House Minority Leader and Congressman Dick Gephardt and his Presidential campaign in 1988 after Gary Hart dropped out.
Trippi also was campaign manager for Vermont Governor and 2004 Democratic Presidential candidate Howard Dean.
Additionally, he assisted Senate elections of California Senator Alan Cranston, Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski, and Oregon Senator Ron Wyden.
Hopefully, the Doug Jones election in a “Red” state will be a turning point nationwide in the midterm Congressional Elections of 2018.
