Congrats to Jon Isaacs, 2007 Rising Star...

After each election cycle, Campaigns & Elections magazine names a set of "Rising Stars" - political consultants and managers, all under age 35 - that are showing promise and changing the world.

This year's crop includes our pal Jon Isaacs.

Jon led the Oregon House Democrats for two election cycles, and led them to a stunning victory in 2006 – winning four seats and a 31-29 majority. The Oregon Dems hadn't picked up seats in a nonpresidential year since 1974, and had been in the minority since 1990. Here at Mandate Media, we worked closely with Jon and his excellent crop of candidates in 2004 and 2006.

As the finance director for Bill Bradbury for US Senate, Jon led a general election fundraising operation in 2002 that raised $2.4 million. As finance director for Bev Stein for Governor, Jon's 2002 primary election fundraising operation led all candidates for Governor, raising $1.7 million.

He's now the vice president at Compass Media - a Chicago-based firm that's led the way for dozens of candidates, labor unions, and independent expenditure operations. And, of course, he's a regular contributor at BlueOregon.

Congrats, Jon!
