Rooney and Isenhour Announce Partnership

Provide Strategic Services for Candidates and Issue Campaigns

Harrisburg—Former Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman T. J. Rooney and former Executive Director Mary Isenhour today announced the formation of Isenhour Rooney Strategies, a consulting firm to provide strategic services to candidates and advocacy groups.

Rooney and Isenhour led the Pennsylvania Democratic Party for seven and half years from 2003 through June 2010, one of the state party’s most successful eras in history. Together, they posted a 73% win record, making Pennsylvania one of the bluest states in the country.

“We learned while at the Party how to execute strategic, winning campaigns with limited resources. We’ve seen a lot of money spent and frankly, a lot of money wasted in campaigns. Our philosophy is that candidates and issues that are important to us can win despite being outspent, if we use our resources wisely” Isenhour said.

Rooney added, “Mary and I became very accustomed to winning and we’re both anxious to get back to doing just that. We figured out ways to win and are ready to put those methods to work for good candidates and causes that are important to us.”

Rooney is a former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and current president of Tri-State Strategies a government affairs firm and Millenium Strategies, a grant writing firm.

Isenhour was Pennsylvania State Director for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign and served as a consultant to Governor Ed Rendell’s political action committee.
