Kristin Davison, VP & General Consultant, Axiom Strategies
Kristin Davison is known to push candidates and campaigns to work harder, grow outside their comfort zones, and advance to the next level. She has over a decade of campaign and policy experience, from local mayoral races to national presidential campaigns, from the White House to the British House of Commons.
A 2019 American Association of Political Consultants’ “40 Under 40” award recipient, Davison joined Axiom Strategies as a Vice President and General Consultant in March of 2019. Prior to joining Axiom, Davison worked with a number of candidates and issue initiatives around the country, managing statewide run-off elections and orchestrating statewide campaign launches the Tampa Bay Times dubbed, “...the most impressive and picturesque campaign kickoffs...” before heading to Nevada to spearhead former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign.
Before the 2018 Election Cycle, Davison was the Deputy Surrogate Director on Senator Marco Rubio’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Senior Advisor to Senator Roy Blunt’s (R-MO) winning 2016 reelection campaign. In Missouri, she refocused the Blunt campaign’s data targeting and opposition research, restructured its field operation, increasing voter contacts by 1,091% in her first month, and led the 2016 Missouri Victory program that resulted in a sweep of all statewide Republican candidates on the ballot.
Davison studied political science at Catholic University of America, but the foundation of her education came during her time as Chief of Staff at Karl Rove and Company. There she was involved in polling, data, messaging, and strategy for statewide, national, and international campaigns, political groups, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal. She also led the research, editing, and marketing of two best-selling books by former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, Karl Rove.
Kristin spoke at the April 2019 Campaign Managers training session.
