What our clients have to say

Working Hard

“ In my line of work, I have met most of the political consultants in the business. Many can help get candidates 49% of the vote, but only a few can achieve 51%. Chuck Adams is among those few. His methods are counter-intuitive, his style is creative, and his difference is called victory!”
Gordon Smith
U.S. Senator

Delivering Results

“A It has been a wonderful experience working with New Media NW. The quick response and quality of work is so important for a candidate during campaign season. It’s reassuring that New Media NW will triple check everything before it goes to print. True professionals!”
Teri Hickel
WA State Representative

Finishing Strong

“ In 2006 I was targeted by local and national interest groups. The campaign was brutal, expensive, and historic. Against all odds and a terrible national wave against Republicans, we won. I turned the campaign strategy over to Chuck Adams & the result speaks for itself.”
Karen Minnis
House Speaker

“I’d like to work it out so that in the end, it comes down to a pure guts race. If it is, I’m the only one who can win it.”

– Steve Prefontaine
