On the Move: RPK Political Dir. Joins Consulting Firm; Babbage Co-Founder Dir. of Advocacy Joins House GOP

The Republican Party of Kentucky lost a valuable member of their political team recently to a direct mail firm, and one of the state’s top lobbying firms now has a member working with House Republicans on policy matters.

Last month, Adam Feldman left the Republican Party of Kentucky where he served as Political Director, helping the GOP expand their supermajority in the state House from 61 to 75 seats.  Before that, he spent a decade in New Mexico, where he helped Republicans take over the state House for the first time in 60 years, and served as a member of Governor Susana Martinez’s political team. 

Feldman is now working for Nashville, Tennessee, based Republican consulting firm Direct Edge Campaigns where he will serve as a vice president.

“Adam’s experience in politics spans over a quarter-century and he’s worked all over the country. We’re excited to have someone of his experience and winning record join our team,” said Direct Edge Founder and President Gregory Gleaves. “Adam will be able to expand our client base and bring seasoned political knowledge that our clients can rely on to help win their campaigns. In addition, as someone who has previously run his own direct mail firm, he is familiar with the ins and outs of the mail business. We’re very excited to bring him on board.”

Feldman is not the only Kentucky politico changing job titles.

This week Lauren Hogan joined the Kentucky House Republican Majority where she will act as a policy analyst. Hogan previously served as the Director of Advocacy and Media at Babbage Cofounder, focusing on the Kentucky General Assembly. Hogan is a veteran of multiple Kentucky Republican campaigns.
