Aziz Yakub managed Adam Frisch’s 2022 near upset of Lauren Boebert. Raising $4 million in 4 months, Frisch outperformed nearly every congressional democrat in the closest race in the country. Before that, he managed campaigns and field programs up and down the ballot, from competitive primaries in Maryland, to local races in nearly every corner of his hometown of New York. In 2018, he got his start in politics as a field organizer in Northwest Indiana on one of the top targeted US Senate races in the country. He has mentored dozens of staff, mobilized hundreds of volunteers, recruited thousands of interns, raised millions of dollars, and produced tens of millions of direct voter contacts. A Bronx native, Aziz lives just outside of DC in Takoma Park, MD. He is a graduate of Harvard University with an honors degree in English. In his free time, he can be found making pommes anna and overwatering his house plants.
Republicans have spent decades cultivating talent and investing for the long run, and right now we’re paying the price. Republicans control 30 state legislatures, 28 governors mansions, and are just a few seats away from regaining control of Congress. Together with an activist Supreme Court, they’re enacting policies that turn back progress on everything from abortion to voting rights to climate change.
