(Washington, D.C.) – Two long-time conservative activists are launching a new partnership with a distinctly conservative focus. Chris Barron, who will lead Right Turn Strategies, which will focus on communications and government affairs, and Lisa De Pasquale, who will lead Bright Media, which will focus on social media and advertising, announced the partnership today.
“This is an exciting time in Washington and across the country for conservatives,” said Barron. “We look forward to helping clients who share our values as they seek to navigate the complex modern conservative movement.”
“The conservative movement has never been more important than it is today,” said De Pasquale. “In particular, the conservative media has grown immensely in its reach and its influence. We will offer clients an unparalleled level of knowledge and experience working with the conservative media.”
“The conservative movement today is made up of a myriad of think tanks, opinion leaders, interest groups, elected officials, media outlets, and grassroots,” continued Barron. “Lisa and I understand how the conservative movement works and understand the messages that will resonate with conservatives.”
“Chris and I also understand that the conservative movement is not monolithic; there are traditional ideological conservatives and libertarians, as well as a new powerful constituency emboldened by the election of President Donald J. Trump,” said De Pasquale.
“We look forward to sharing our experience and expertise with clients who seek to advance policies that will help make America great!” concluded Barron.
