Bryan Sanders Bio
The fast-rising political advisor was born on December 10, 1983, in Kansas State. He spent most of his early life in Johnson County City, in Mission Woods where his family lived. Bryan completed his basic education at Shawnee Mission East High School, after which he headed to Colby College to further his academic pursuits. He studied Campaign Media and graduated with the 2006 class.
Upon leaving school, Bryan Sanders immediately launched his political career. His first job was as a staff member for Samuel Brownback, the then governor of Kansas before he was elevated to the position of press assistant. He later went on to serve as campaign manager following the governor’s announcement of his intention to contest for the White House seat in 2008. Brownback soon backed out from the presidential race, so Bryan went off to join forces with Mike Huckabee as the National Political Director for his campaign.
His reputation gained an extra boost after he was employed by The Wickers, a prominent political media firm in 2009. He was charged with handling the gubernatorial pursuits for Robert J. Bentley and his efforts proved to be immensely successful when Bentley was elected governor. Bryan went on to serve as the campaign manager for Ted Yoho, while he was contesting to get into Congress. The ad campaign, Pigs, devised by Bryan not only helped sway the election in Ted’s favor, but it was also regarded as one of the finest political ads in recent times. These achievements led to him being named amongst the Rising Star in Politics.
In addition, Bryan Sanders has spearheaded political campaigns and advisory for several prominent names in politics such as Congressman French Hill of Arkansas, State Treasurer Lynn Fitch of Mississippi, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick of Texas, and Attorney General Scott Pruit of Oklahoma, Congressman Trent Franks of Arizona to mention a few.
