In 2010, Warren Kampf faced a Democratic incumbent in one of the most competitive performing districts in Pennsylvania. Kampf’s campaign was outspent nearly 2-1. By remaining disciplined with his message and constantly contrasting with the incumbent, Kampf won a 700 vote victory.
In 2012, Kampf once again faced the Democrat he defeated in 2010 in what was billed by news organizations as the most competitive state House election of the year due to both the district’s voting performance and the Presidential race above him on the ballot. A strategy was developed to never allow a vulnerable message to resonate and taking a focused approach to message development with major topics such as education. Kamp went on to win re-election by 1,000 votes despite 10,000 more voters showing up than in 2010.
