About

Michael Marinaccio is a veteran campaign strategist, designer, and developer. He is also writes for The Politic and is a media consultant.

Michael is currently Deputy Campaign Manager for Adam Putnam for Governor. He was formerly Senior Digital Director at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, overseeing their online publication Above the Fold and working to modernize the Chamber across all digital platforms.

Before joining the U.S. Chamber, Michael helped take over the U.S. Senate in 2014 on Thom Tillis’s campaign in North Carolina. After, he worked closely with top senate races to hold the Senate majority in 2016 as Creative Director at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He oversaw a small team that executed design, video production, writing, and rapid response to keep the #MajorityWorking.

Michael previously worked for Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. He led the effort to rebrand the committee under a new chairman with a new logo, website, and communications strategy, including being the first committee to stream live to YouTube and hold a joint Twitter Townhall with a department Secretary (that also trended nationally).

In 2012, Michael worked as a fundraiser for Rep. Cory Gardner, Rep. Jason Smith, Rep Jo Ann Emerson, and Sen. Jon Kyl, as well as for their respective leadership PAC’s. Little known fact: he helped design the second revision of Heritage Action’s widely feared scorecard as an intern in 2011.

Michael received a B.A. from Coastal Carolina University and hails from South Carolina. He currently lives in Virginia with his wife Libby.
