Gregory Gleaves: 2016 Election Year News

The 2016 Election year is kicking off right at Direct Edge Campaigns. Many of our candidates won big on Super Tuesday, and we have many more candidates with elections on March 15. So we are kicking it into full gear and are glad to be back in an election year.


We picked up six trophies at the Goldie Awards last week, all voted on by our industry peers.

We took home the Golden Elephant Award for both the “Kiffin,” piece, which by now we have milked to death, as you can see here, and the “Do You Know Who is Really Behind the Campaign of Sabi ‘Doc’ Kumar?” piece. The awards were for Best Independent Expenditure and Best Republican Legislative mail. Both of these pieces are featured in our portfolio here.

It was also great to be honored for our work with the West Virginia Republican Party. We have a blast working with these guys, and were pleased to win an award for this fun little piece below.


It is especially exciting to win awards for work done in three different states. I started this firm with a very clear goal to do work nationally.

Greg Capelli

In another piece of news that many of you already know, Greg Capelli has been named strategic partner with Direct Edge Campaigns. With over 15 years experience in designing and writing mail, he is the best in the business.  He has a brilliant strategic mind and knows how to win elections.  And that is why we are in business, to win elections.
