FP1 won high-profile campaigns at every level of the ballot in 2020. Through our advertising and digital teams, our firm played a significant role in defending the Republican majority in the United States Senate, helping to elect 12 Senators through our direct work with campaigns and through independent expenditures.

FP1 also helped elect 3 Republican Governors and 3 Republican Attorneys General, and we served as the general consultant, media consultant and digital strategists on some of the highest-profile congressional races in the country.

In total, we helped elect 16 Republican members of Congress in 2020 and went 5-0 in races listed as “Toss Up” / “Lean Democratic” by the Cook Political Report.

FP1 also won two big ballot initiatives, helping stop a job-killing wage tax in Oregon and expanding health insurance coverage in Missouri.

“We were fortunate to work with very talented candidates and some of the best political professionals in the business this year at several Republican committees and super PACs,” said FP1 founding partner Terry Nelson. “I am very proud of our team. We performed at a high level under stressful circumstances during the pandemic, delivering the exceptional service that our clients expect and deserve.”

“Our success this cycle speaks to the commitment we give to each and every one of our clients,” said FP1 founding partner Jon Downs. “Every race is unique, and FP1 strives to bring creativity and fresh thinking to each one. It’s how we helped our candidates overcome the green wave of liberal money and reach Fifty Plus One in 2020.”
