With more than 15 years of experience in lobbying, government, and politics, Brad Howard joins 50 to 1 as a principal where he works to help clients meet their needs at the state and federal levels. 

Brad is a highly sought after lobbyist who previously served as Chief of Staff to U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy (D-FL) from 2017 – 2022 where POLITICO described him as a “key powerbroker for House moderates.” 

A former political appointee in the Obama Administration, Brad also served as Press Secretary and Spokesperson for New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who now serves as Senior Advisor to President Biden and Infrastructure Coordinator, leading the implementation of the bipartisan infrastructure law, also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

Brad got his start in Arkansas politics as an intern for then-Congressman, and now, Senator John Boozman (R-AR), and eventually made his way to Washington to serve as Communications Director for Congressman Mike Ross (D-AR). Brad went on to become the spokesperson for the Democratic Blue Dog Coalition in the House before he moved back to Arkansas to help his former boss run for governor. After two stints managing U.S. Senate races in Arkansas and Indiana, he eventually moved to Florida to run Stephanie Murphy’s historic campaign that shocked the nation by unseating a 24-year incumbent with what the Washington Post named one of the “ten best-run campaigns” in the nation that cycle.

Brad earned his Bachelor of Arts in Politics from Hendrix College in Conway, Ark., and his Master of Arts in Public Communications from American University in Washington, D.C.
