Justin Barasky

Justin Barasky is a partner at Left Hook.

When Justin was singing and dancing in the shows at SeaWorld, he never imagined that he would become a Democratic strategist with more than a decade of helping to guide the biggest and most competitive U.S. Senate races in the country.

Most recently, Justin served as a Senior Advisor to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) where he helped flip four Republican seats to take back the Senate.

Previously, he served as the Campaign Manager for Senator Sherrod Brown's successful 2018 reelection in Ohio. It was one of just three Democratic Senate races to win in a state Trump won in 2016, outperforming Trump’s margin by more than 15 points.

Prior to 2018 Justin developed a reputation as an aggressive communications operative as the Communications Director at Priorities USA and Communications Director and National Press Secretary at the DSCC.

Justin also served as Communications Director for Senator Sherrod Brown’s successful re-election campaign in 2012 and Press Secretary and Rapid Response Director for Senator Harry Reid's successful 2010 re-election campaign.

Justin is a huge Cleveland sports fan, and he resides in Washington D.C. with his wife Lauren, son Henry, and dog Kyrie.
