HSG Campaigns


Originally from the Midwest, we have been working on Democratic political campaigns across the country for fifteen years and have been based in Southern California for the past five years.

We have created and built this business because we have a passion for making the world a better place. We work to elect candidates that we believe in who will help to change the world.

We are experts at creating a winning campaign that is built around your authentic values while still reflecting your district or state. Specializing in direct mail, online advertising, and campaign field operations, we believe that the formula for winning today is using traditional and modern campaign tactics.

You can’t change the world without winning the election.

Reach out to us if you would like to learn more about how we can help you create your winning campaign.

Recognized as a “Rising Star” by Campaigns and Elections magazine in 2012, Eric has helped create and implement innovative, winning strategies for candidates, state Democratic parties, labor, and non-profit organizations.

Since its founding in 2007, Eric and his company, HSG Campaigns, have had a transformative impact on the political landscape. Based in downtown Los Angeles, the company’s specialty is taking first-time and underdog candidates to victory, including Milwaukee Alderman Nik Kovac; Cook County’s first female and Hispanic State’s Attorney, Anita Alvarez; and Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino; all of whom upset their opponents in crowded primaries.

Eric also specializes in helping labor, environmental, and other progressive organizations elect strong candidates to office, producing mail for the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters, and countless other progressive groups. In 2011, HSG Campaigns played a key role in the Wisconsin recall elections, producing mail that aided in the upset victories of three Democratic candidates.

In 2006, Eric steered first-time candidate Dr. Steve Kagen to an upset victory in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District. Eric helped Dr. Kagen defeat two better-known candidates in the primary and then counter a multi-million dollar campaign run by the national Republican Party to prevail in the 2006 November election.
