Our Team

Jason Hebert

Politics Magazine recently named Jason Hebert as one of the Top 500 political influencers in America. He co-founded The Political Firm after managing the Bush-Cheney ‘04 Campaign in Louisiana and Colorado, winning key victories in both states. A former state Republican Party Executive Director and Political Director, Hebert is the veteran of over 350 campaigns in the last 19 years.

In addition to serving as General Consultant to Members of Congress, statewide and local elected officials, he has served as a political advisor to Fortune 500 companies and is a frequent guest lecturer to domestic and international groups seeking a better understanding on grassroots organization, strategy, public affairs, changing political trends and media communications.

Jason is a graduate of Louisiana State University with a B.A. in Political Science. Jason and his wife Lisa have two children, Jase and Jackson.

Scott Hobbs

An Okie who packed his ’88 Civic and moved to Baton Rouge in 1994 to finish his B.A. at LSU and start his education in real world politics, Scott has offered his time and talents to over 300 campaigns spanning 20 years and several states.

Armed with a legitimate poll, solid candidate/issue/cause and caffeine, Scott has been crafting the strategy, messages and ads for The Political Firm’s clients since co-founding the agency in 2006 (see site for samples).

In addition, as an Adjunct Professor at LSU’s Manship School of Journalism, Scott has recouped some of the tuition he paid to LSU while earning a Master’s in Mass Communication and, at the same time, helped provide students with insight into how political ads are constructed and why.

Scott is married to Lisa McMillan Hobbs and they have two children, Ethan and Olivia.

Daniel Espinoza

Daniel Espinoza joined The Political Firm after working for the Louisiana State House of Representatives for three years. While at the Capitol, Espinoza worked with several delegations, as well as the office of The Speaker of the House, before joining the TPF team. During the 2014 election cycle Espinoza managed the direct mail plans of eight campaigns across the state for The Political Firm.

Espinoza began his career in politics volunteering and walking neighborhoods for local campaigns before making his way to the Capitol and finally to TPF. Currently studying political communication at LSU, Espinoza will continue to work on message development, content production and direct mail plans in the upcoming election cycles.

Korey Ryder

Since joining the TPF team in the summer 2014, Korey has served as the account manager for clients ranging from City Judge to United States Congressman. In this role, Korey has overseen the production and distribution of mass mail pieces, written press releases, and created/managed social media pages for clients, upon other services.

Previously, Korey worked on the legislative side of government at the Louisiana State Capitol. During his time working with the Jefferson Parish Legislative Delegation, he took a hands-on approach to the policy aspects of state government: tracking legislation and gaining critical research experience throughout the legislative session.

Korey, a native of Oberlin, LA, will be graduating with his B.S. in Political Science from LSU in December 2015. In the time after, Korey looks to expand the capabilities of The Political Firm, digitally – furthering the competitiveness of the business.
