Hackworth has 10 years of political research under his belt, six of which were spent working toward Obama’s two successful presidential campaigns. That included stints on the two campaigns and at the Democratic National Committee.

He spent 2006 with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and formerly researched for Democratic strategist James Carville.
