Harper Lawson

Partner / Politics

Harper Lawson brings together a combination of state and national experience in communications, government, and campaign management. With distinct creative approaches and an authentic writing style, he creates messaging and strategy that helps connect directly with voters. His work has helped GMMB’s clients, campaigns, and causes define the narrative early and win tough races down the stretch — particularly in swing states and more conservative regions of the country.

In 2022, he helped lead GMMB’s work for Kansans for Constitutional Freedom to defeat an extreme anti-abortion ballot initiative, managed paid communications and creative in Arizona to pass Prop 209 – capping medical debt interest in the state at just 3%, and spearheaded creative content that helped re-elect Senator Ron Wyden, Governor Laura Kelly, and Congresswoman Kim Schrier.

Over the years, he’s written, produced, and directed award-winning ads for the Democratic Governors Association, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Senate Majority PAC, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the League of Conservation Voters, as well as developed advertising and media strategy for several statewide ballot initiatives on public health, minimum wage, paid sick leave, voting rights, education funding, and environmental protection.

Harper has managed gubernatorial campaigns, worked as a communications director on the Hill, and served as Montana’s chief deputy secretary of state. He currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
