This year’s winners represent the very best in business of politics.”

Kim Cubine, president of CCAH, said, “More than 25 years ago our agency was founded by talented individuals with roots in political fundraising. Over the years, CCAH has diversified and expanded into progressive causes, women’s issues and nonprofit work, among other areas. It is gratifying to know that as our agency has changed we’ve retained the same level of excellence in our original area of expertise. We are proud of our ongoing ability to engage national and international donors in the support of important causes.”

The AAPC announced this year’s winners at the 2015 Annual Pollie Awards & Conference on March 19 in New Orleans. The Pollie Awards (Pollies) are bipartisan honors awarded annually by the AAPC to members of the political advertising and communications industry who have demonstrated superior work on behalf of their candidates and causes. A blind jury of their peers selects AAPC award winners. Esquire magazine has dubbed the Pollies “the Oscars of political advertising.” 

The annual Pollie Awards & Conference brings the leading political professionals in the world together to network and hear from top technology innovators, pollsters, pundits and service providers as the 2015 political cycle begins to heat up.
