in Statewide by

Gotta give credit where credit is due:, The Victory Group was honored with two national Pollie Awards, the political industry’s top honors for excellence in the field.

The award winners:

“The Tiahrt Story” – A beautifully illustrated portrait of Congressman Todd Tiahrt’s personal life, early college days, ideology and political aspirations, much of it passionately and personally narrated by his wife Vicky.

This short film, e-blasted to a large national network, featured in social media, and posted on the campaign’s website home page, is still in play as Tiahrt contrasts his brand of conservative leadership with that of a fellow Kansas congressman in a top-tier fight for a U.S. Senate seat.

“Three Leaders”– Written and directed for John Thrasher’s special election to the Florida State Senate, this 30-second spot joined at the hip three Republican icons: Sen. Thrasher, Congressman Ander Crenshaw, and former Governor Jeb Bush.  Sen. Thrasher’s background, including spirited leadership as a former House Speaker, dominated the agenda in this short porch campaign.
