Our Wins

Convergence has a proven track record of flipping seats and winning tough races. A few highlights include:

In the most expensive congressional race in US history, Convergence served as the lead strategy, media, and digital firm for Karen Handel’s victory over Jon Ossoff. Even though Ossoff outspent Handel, Convergence created targeted TV, web, and radio ads that resonated with voters in Georgia’s 6th congressional District.

In 2018, Convergence helped Florida Governor Ron DeSantis climb the polls and claim victory. After two biographical television ads aired statewide, Governor DeSantis took the lead and never lost it.

In Florida’s 26th district, our team flipped the highly competitive seat serving as Representative Gimenez’s media and digital team to help defeat incumbent Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. As Gimenez’s opponents aired negative attack ads, Convergence created ads that emphasized Gimenez’s authenticity and commitment to service, like Great Partners, which was shot at a local donut shop in Miami. Rep. Gimenez now represents the most Democrat-leaning congressional district held by a Republican in America (D+6) according to the Cook Political Report.

“As a first time candidate for office, it was critical for me to have a firm that could tell my story in a way that cut through the clutter against a field of 'experienced' politicians and activists. Convergence produced very creative, precisely targeted television, digital and radio advertising that helped me go from a virtually unknown local doctor to winning a competitive primary and being a member of Congress today. I don’t think I could have won without their creativity, their hard-work, counsel and friendship.”
Dr. John Joyce
Member of Congress (13th District)
