Since 1999, Cam Savage has served as a campaign and policy adviser to some of the Republican Party’s boldest leaders.
In 2016, Cam served as general consultant and chief strategist for U.S. Senator Todd Young’s (R-IN) come-from-behind landslide victory over former Indiana Senator and Governor Evan Bayh. Political pundits were dismissive of Young’s chances after Bayh entered the race in July with a $10 million war chest, universal name recognition and a twenty-six point polling advantage. But the Young campaign’s relentless and systematic assault on Bayh’s record and policies proved decisive in what one national observer called “the destruction of a brand.”
Also in 2016, Cam was general consultant for one of the nation’s most expensive and hotly contested House races, U.S. Rep. John Faso’s (R-NY) decisive victory in an upstate New York district carried twice by President Obama. From 2014 through 2016, Cam served as a political advisor to former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt until Pruitt’s appointment as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Prior to co-founding Limestone Strategies, Cam was the Communications Director and oversaw the political operations for Governor Mitch Daniels’ 2008 re-election campaign that received more votes than any campaign in Indiana history.
After the Daniels campaign, Savage served as Director of Communications at the Indiana Department of Education, working with Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Bennett to implement an aggressive agenda of education reform.
Cam also has extensive experience in federal government and campaigns. He served as Regional Political Director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee in 2012. In the previous cycle, Cam managed the successful U.S. Senate campaign of Dan Coats and the successful Congressional primary campaign for Representative Todd Rokita (IN-04).
As Chief of Staff to Congressman Mike Sodrel during the 109th Congress, Cam was responsible for all of Sodrel’s congressional work in Washington, D.C. and Indiana.
In his capacity at Limestone, Cam has served as the General Consultant on numerous winning campaigns, including Congressman John Ratcliffe’s (TX-04) 2014 upset of a 34-year incumbent, as well as multiple state legislative and mayoral candidates.
Cam received a BA in Journalism and Political Science from Franklin College of Indiana.
