In subsequent years, he worked on four additional presidential campaigns, the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, U.S. Senator John Thune and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.
Phillip reached high acclaim in the political world as the National Get-Out-The-Vote Director for President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection.
