Mitch Stewart
Mitch Stewart is a founding partner at 270 Strategies. He most recently served as the Battleground States Director for the Obama for America campaign, where he oversaw a state strategy and program that garnered victories in nine of the ten battleground states in the 2012 presidential general election. In this role, he helped build what The Guardian called “a historic ground operation that will provide the model for political campaigns in America and around the world for years to come.” He was previously National Director of Organizing for America, the organization that drove grassroots momentum for high-profile legislative victories including the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Wall Street Reform, and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Since January 2007, Mitch has held a number of key positions critical to the President’s success – including serving as the Iowa State Caucus Director for the first Obama presidential campaign. As the Virginia State Director during the 2008 general election, Mitch led the team that delivered Virginia for the Democratic candidate for the first time since 1964.
