Virginia

This office was originally opened by Ben Marchi, who then became director of Americans for Prosperity in Virginia. It is now run by Steve Thomas.

John has run numerous winning political campaigns in Virginia from 1988 to present, and oversaw corporate efforts at Richmond-based McGuireWoods for five years.

John won two Virginia Republican conventions for candidates, and Concentric continued its winning streak in 2008: many predicted that 32 year-old Jeff Frederick would not even get 30 percent of the vote against the former Lieutenant Governor and incumbent chair. No incumbent had lost since 1971. However, Frederick won 8 of 11 Congressional Districts and 59 percent of the vote.

John’s first political assignment was putting together a joint press conference for State Delegate George Allen and Henrico County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Gilmore in 1989, and he continued to work for both men – each of whom eventually moved on to the Governorship (in 1993 and 1997, respectively).
