2014 proved to be a very successful election for the Red Dome team. Here is just a sampling of our 2014 accomplishments
- As Executive Director of the North Carolina Republican Party, Red Dome’s Todd Poole successfully directed the party’s efforts to elect US Senator Thom Tillis. Poole oversaw all of the party’s paid advertising efforts and statewide grassroots operations in Tillis’ come-from-behind victory over an incumbent senator in the most expensive race in North Carolina History. Red Dome Group’s newest team member, Carolyn Justice, also played an integral role in leading these efforts as the Vice-Chair of the North Carolina Republican Party.
- US Congressman Mark Meadows won reelection in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District receiving a remarkable 63% of the vote.
- First-time candidate Judge Chris Freeman defeated the incumbent Chief District Court Judge, who had won the seat four times since 1998, by 0.3%.
- New AL Senator Clyde Chambliss won his primary, run-off and general elections by overwhelming margins. Senator Chambliss received 49% of the vote in the primary in a four candidate field, defeated his opponent in the run-off election by an almost 2-to-1 margin, and received 80% of the vote in the general election.
- NC Senator Michael Lee, who was targeted by the NC Democratic Party and numerous liberal special interest groups, won reelection to the Senate by more than 10% of the vote. Lee had previously earned over 81% of the vote in a competitive primary
- NC House Republican Caucus Chair Charles Jeter remained the only Republican in the North Carolina House to represent a district carried by President Obama when he prevailed in his race by a 52.5% to 47.5% margin. For perspective, Senator Tillis lost Rep. Jeter’s district by 18%
- Our client Michele D. Presnell won reelection in a remarkable come-from-behind victory. Down by 13% less than a month prior to Election Day, Rep. Presnell ultimately prevailed by 3.5%, despite being outspent 4-to-1 by her opponent and being targeted with hundreds of thousands of dollars in attack ads.
- NC Rep. Jason Saine received 71% of the vote in his re-election bid, the second-highest percentage received by any Republican House member who faced Democratic opposition.
- As part of an independent expenditure campaign with the Lincoln County Republican Party, we helped new District Attorney Michael Miller win a long-time Democratic district with 64% of the vote
