A campaign operative by training, Kevin Walling has advanced progressive policies on Capitol Hill, in state legislatures and on the municipal level for over a decade. He is the co-founder of Celtic Strategies, LLC and the Vice President of Hamburger Gibson Creative, advising the Democratic National Committee, congressional campaigns, Democratic state parties, and progressive organizations on communications efforts, digital engagement programs and targeted voter contact strategies.
Since the 2016 election, Kevin has appeared as a regular guest on conservative leaning media outlets including Fox News, Fox Business, Newsmax and the One America News (OAN) Network, providing a Democratic prospective on the Trump Administration’s policies and current events. In 2010, Kevin helped launch No Labels, serving as the organization’s first
Political and Field Director, as well as a key national spokesman. In this capacity, he crisscrossed the country building grassroots support for bipartisan solutions on Capitol Hill.
By far, Kevin’s proudest policy accomplishment was helping to lead the successful effort to pass marriage equality as a director of Equality Maryland during the critical 2008 election cycle, when Maryland voters elected their first pro-equality majority in the State Assembly and Senate. In 2014, Kevin was elected to serve as a Democratic Committeeman in Montgomery County, MD and served a term as the chairman of the county’s Democratic Party.
