Spencer Sullivan is the Director for Grassroots Engagement for the Leadership Institute.

Spencer began his career on the hill working for a member of Congress. He transitioned to the campaign world and has managed victorious top-tier Federal races and targeted state races. On the campaign trail, Spencer has been involved in every aspect of managing a campaign. He has experience in fundraising, messaging, earned media, field operations, paid voter contact, polling, and GOTV operations.

Having been frequently outspent by incumbent campaigns during challenging races, Spencer has learned the importance of running a lean, effective campaign that makes every dollar stretch as far as possible. Spencer specializes in challenger campaigns and has ousted incumbents in back-to-back elections.

Spencer routinely appears on television as a pundit and discusses the news of the day. He also consults for trade associations, pharmaceutical companies, and works internationally in guiding conservative candidates through their elections. 

Raised in the Northeast, Spencer is one of five brothers, he enjoys catching up with his family and rooting for his beloved Boston sport’s teams. Spencer, his wife, and daughter Reagan live in Alexandria, VA.
