Evan Albertson is a senior director at FP1 Strategies. Before joining the team, Albertson worked on tough races in over a dozen states. In 2016, he ran the top field office for U.S. Senator Rob Portman’s reelection campaign. Albertson then served as the deputy national field director for the Congressional Leadership Fund during the 2018 midterms, where he helped launch and oversee a national field program that made 35 million voter contacts. When Texas Congressman Michael McCaul was listed as one of the top targets of the 2020 cycle, Albertson retooled the political operation and managed one of the most sophisticated congressional campaigns in the country. After that election, he remained a close advisor to Congressman McCaul while also taking a lead role in Texas Congressman Tony Gonzales’ campaign. In a majority Hispanic district encompassing more of the U.S.-Mexico border than any other district, Albertson helped Congressman Gonzales achieve a 17-point victory while flipping multiple counties across South Texas that had not gone Republican in decades.
