In partnership with the law firm, Holtzman Vogel, FP1 Partner Danny Diaz and Managing Director Mike Young managed an absentee ballot curing process, aggressive field program and earned media campaign to help secure Republican Bob Anderson’s victory over liberal Democrat Buta Biberaj in the Loudoun County prosecutor’s race.
Despite being outspent $1.1 million to $70,000, Anderson defeated Biberaj by a margin of 300 votes out of 135,836 votes cast. Given the closeness of the race, there was enormous pressure to ensure that the last votes in the race were counted correctly. Anderson’s campaign was run by Colin Sudduth of Winning Republican Strategies (WRS).
Buta Biberaj was elected in 2019 with the financial support of George Soros. She was one of the most liberal prosecutors in America and had been very lenient to criminals, leading to a surge in violent crime in Loudoun Country.
With the race within the recount margin, FP1 worked alongside the campaign and legal team on the absentee ballot curing process and ran a field operation focused on reaching out to Republicans whose votes could still be counted. Targets received five touches by phone and at the door during the final days of the canvass, helping push the race further out of reach for Biberaj.
FP1 also managed earned media on behalf of Holtzman Vogel, pushing updates and driving the narrative on Anderson’s ‘insurmountable’ lead to friendly reporters and Republican leaders in Loudoun County and throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“FP1 congratulates Bob Anderson on his victory in the hotly contested Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney’s race,” said FP1 Managing Director Mike Young. “We are proud to have played a role, working in conjunction with Holtzman Vogel and WRS in restoring law and order in Loudoun County.”
