Rebecca Cooke, Principal
Cooke is the founding principal of Cooke Strategy, a Democratic fundraising consulting firm. Prior to starting Cooke Strategy, Rebecca served as finance director for four nationally targeted races in MN, MI, CO and CA. At her most recent post as finance director with Congressman Raul Ruiz she raised $3.4 million helping to cement a 2014 win in one of the toughest cycles for Democrats. Hard work runs through her veins growing up on a dairy farm in Western Wisconsin - she's a consultant who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty and grind it out when things are tough.
For candidates, she can help to take a campaign from the ground up by building out your team and reaching strong cash-on-hand numbers to start your run off right.
For incumbents, Cooke is seasoned in creating swings to multiple cities in limited timeframes with the demands of District work and the rapidly changing DC voting schedule.
In the 2016 cycle, Cooke worked for the following:
- Murphy for US Senate (FL)
- Nelson for Congress (WI)
- Bangstad for Congress (WI)
- Wachs for Assembly (WI)
- Rodriguez for Assembly (CA)
