Firehouse Strategies, the DC shop founded by staffers from Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio’s presidential run, has acquired the Democratic Scarlet Oak Strategies shop.

He will become a partner at Firehouse Strategies.

He has worked on campaigns for Democrats such as Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former governors Jon Corzine (NJ) and Martin O’Malley (MD).

Scarlet Oak has run campaigns for National Opioid Litigation Consortium, BlueCross Blue Shield, Chamber of Progress, CVS Health, Pew Charitable Trusts, AFSCME, National League of Cities, Share Our Strength and Coalition for the Northeast Corridor.
