CREATIVE POLITICAL AND ELECTORAL STRATEGIC PLANNING
Delacey Skinner’s expertise lies in developing strategies for hard-to-win campaigns, messages for complex and challenging issues, and creative content that moves target audiences through emotional engagement.
Prior to co-founding Eichenbaum Skinner Strategies, Delacey was a Managing Director at Democratic media firm GMMB, where she served as a lead strategist on a wide range of political and issue advocacy campaigns. During her time at GMMB, Delacey worked on Senator Ron Wyden’s 2016 reelection and with NextGen Climate Action Committee to help secure Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial victory.
She led the DSCC’s successful independent expenditures for Heidi Heitkamp and Tim Kaine and led work for the DCCC IE and the League of Conservation Voters – including their successful 2012 independent expenditures for Jon Tester and Martin Heinrich. Delacey’s other political and issue advocacy clients have included EMILY’s List, Sierra Club, Environmental Defense Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, National Women’s Law Center, Visa, and CTIA-The Wireless Association.
Before GMMB, Delacey served as Communications Director for Virginia Governor Tim Kaine and for Terry McAuliffe’s 2009 campaign. In 2004, she was Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director for America Coming Together's New Hampshire office and helped New Hampshire become the only red-to-blue state in the 2004 presidential election.
Delacey leads training for Democratic women who want to run for office through Emerge, and her creative work has drawn the attention of the political and issue advertising community, receiving Reed and Pollie Awards and recognition as part of the “Best of the Best” at the 2012 American Association of Political Consultants Conference.
