With almost 20 years of experience on Capitol Hill and with dozens of campaigns at the local, state and federal levels, Brian is a veteran political strategist and public affairs expert who has worked at some of the highest levels of politics and government. Campaigns and Elections Magazine named Walsh one of the top communicators in Washington: “On the air, online and in the strategy room, these messengers will be out front for their parties.” And the cutting-edge political website BuzzFeed named Walsh as one on their top “communications-obsessed operatives for the Twitter-age” in Washington.
Prior to leaving Capitol Hill, Walsh served as current Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn’s chief communications strategist – first in his official Senate office as Communications Director and then at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) for both the 2010 and 2012 election cycles during which Republicans gained five new Republican Senate seats. He was also a consultant to the NRSC team that won the Senate Republican Majority in 2014.
In addition to his work in the Senate, at the NRSC and on numerous political campaigns, Walsh also worked in the U.S. House of Representatives for almost 10 years, where he served as Communications Director for a key Congressional Committee and several members of Congress. He is a graduate of Bucknell University.
