WASHINGTON, DC – Thursday evening, DSPolitical – the nation’s leading voter targeted digital ad network for Democrats and progressives – was honored with gold and silver wins at the American Association of Political Consultant’s (AAPC) 2015 Annual Pollie Awards. The company was recognized for its collaboration with the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) to bring voter-targeted digital advertising to Democratic state legislative candidates and for deploying the same type of sophisticated digital targeting to win statewide ballot measures and campaigns for local office. The awards included:

  • Best Use of New Technology – Silver – DLCCads.com by DSPolitical & DLCC.
  • Best Use of Voter File-Matched Advertising – Gold – No Personhood Colorado (No on 67) by DSPolitical & JVA Campaigns.
  • Best Internet Advertising for Local, Municipal, or Regional Campaign – Silver – DemocraticAds.com for Jim Tedesco for Bergen County Executive by DSPolitical & Silver Strategies Group.

According to the AAPC, “the Pollie Awards are the most prized and sought-after awards in the political communications and public affairs industries. Whether submitted by large consulting companies or individual consultants, this is the one arena where every piece of work is considered equal in competing for honors of excellence.”

“We’re humbled by the recognition our work has received for disrupting and democratizing the voter targeted digital ad space. Putting the power of our unrivaled data and near universal reach into the hands Democratic campaigns and their consultants has transformed the way campaigns big and small are run,” said Jim Walsh, DSPolitical’s co-founder and CEO.

In addition to the recognition DSPolitical’s innovation and work on behalf of clients received, partner and chief operating officer Christopher Massicotte was named by the American Association of Political Consultants to its annual “40 under 40” list recognizing “40 of the best and brightest young political professionals under 40 years old working in the United States.”

Earlier this year, DSPolitical’s DemocraticAds.com was also recognized for “Best Use of New Technology” at the 2015 Reed Awards sponsored by Campaigns & Elections magazine.


DSPolitical is the nation’s leading voter targeted digital ad network having helped scores of Democrats and progressives reach the exact voters they need to win and serving hundreds of millions of digital and mobile ads in the process. It’s safe to say that no other company knows more about the digital granular targeting of voters than DSPolitical. That’s why it is often called, “the home of digital targeting.”
