Michael DeSantis, Political Arena’s Youngest Campaign Manager
Last week we sat down with the political arena’s youngest campaign manager, Michael DeSantis. We originally reached out to Michael for ideas on our own post election ad products, but during our chat we were impressed by his depth of knowledge in the area despite his age and requested a full interview.
Recently graduated from High School, Michael has already worked on several campaigns and is now in charge of the Congressional campaign for J.J. Summerell in NC’s 1st district.
Michael’s goals are to develop his business and political acumen until he is able to move into Venture Capitalism and eventually run for office. Ultimately, he aims to be one of the Presidential Candidates of 2036.
ConstiuAds: Why Political? Why now?
Michael DeSantis: I would listen to discussions at school and found that I really enjoyed the idea of it. At an early age, I decided to go volunteer for a campaign. I loved the experience and have been at it since.
What are the challenges of being the youngest campaign manager in your space?
The biggest challenge I’ve had as a campaign manager is getting people to work for me. I have to be overly professional in general. I have to bring my “A Game” every single day. This was especially challenging in the beginning, but now I have people who vouch for my expertise, which helps.
Also, not a lot of people want to work for a congressional campaign, and once they see me in person and see how young I am they think, “I don’t want to work with someone younger than me…”. It ads an extra challenge to recruiting volunteers.
