(Portsmouth, New Hampshire) Soldati for Congress campaign announced that it has retained seasoned Democratic campaign operative Jordan Overstreet, who has managed multiple large-scale voter outreach campaigns. He comes to the campaign highly recommended by a trusted national campaign advisor who grew up in the district and by those who have worked with him over the past decade.
With a BS in Political Science from Missouri State University, Jordan began his political career working on local races and progressive causes, and later served as the Director of the Missouri House Democrats. There he worked with dozens of candidates to build modern campaigns and find their campaigns’ voice. He moved on to work with a national grassroots voter contact firm, where he oversaw large-scale voter outreach projects for an environmental advocacy group, progressive coalitions, and party committees. In 2016, Jordan managed a statewide effort in North Carolina that included 45 full time staff and 1500 canvassers, resulting in over 450,000 doors knocked in 32 days, and helping to oust the Republican incumbent in an otherwise difficult election.
About the position with the Soldati campaign, Overstreet said, “Like most campaign staff, it’s important for me to work with someone who holds positions I value, but it is also important to me to support an authentic advocate who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. Lincoln Soldati is that candidate. If we truly want a better Washington, we have to elect more leaders who share our values and have shown an ability to get things done. When I learned that Lincoln spent his career advocating for the vulnerable, and retired only to support the Sioux Nation at the risk of getting arrested, I knew this was the candidate that Washington doesn’t often see, and New Hampshire clearly wants.
Over the next several months we will be building a modern campaign that reaches every corner of the district.”
According to Soldati, “Jordan brings a breadth of experience and a commitment to grassroots organizing that reflects our approach to winning the first congressional district. He has an appreciation of the retail politics necessary to win in the state of New Hampshire. A key to Jordan’s success is his ability/willingness to listen and work with local experienced Democratic volunteers – combining our local knowledge with his experience with running professional campaigns, all of which will make us more effective.”
