Mike Biundo has a lot of fond memories of Iowa, but now he wants to make some more.  Following his campaign kick-off last week, U.S. Senate candidate Sam Clovis has hired RightOn Strategies to serve as his general consultant for his campaign.

Biundo served as Rick Santorum’s national campaign manager in 2012 during the nomination phase on the campaign.  He served as Mitt Romney’s Deputy Coalitions Director in the general election.  Biundo then started the political consulting firm, RightOn Strategies.

“We are pleased to be joining the Clovis for U.S. Senate team,” Biundo told TheIowaRepublican.com.  “I had the honor of getting to know Sam Clovis during the 2012 campaign, and I am confident that Sam has the experience, dedication and work ethic needed to be Iowa’s next U.S. Senator.”

Like Santorum’s campaign at the onset of the 2012 campaign, many view the Clovis campaign as a long shot to win the nomination.  However, the similarities between Clovis and Santorum go beyond the fact that establishment Republicans and the media are skeptical about their chances.  Clovis is well versed on foreign policy issues and is an unabashed conservative who should find a following among GOP primary voters.  Biundo also intimated that the campaign intends to travel the entire state looking for votes.

“After working in Iowa for Rick Santorum campaign, I know first-hand that it takes a strong 99 county campaign to achieve victory in Iowa.  My team and I are looking forward to the working with Sam to ensure just that,” Biundo stated.

“I am excited to have RightOn Strategies join my team,” said Clovis.  “Their track record of putting together strong grassroots campaigns, including the one here that visited and competed in all of Iowa’s 99 counties, is exactly the type of campaign we are going to build.  In my opinion, Mike Biundo ran an outstanding campaign for Senator Santorum, and I am excited that he and his team have agreed to bring their extensive skills and abilities to our campaign.”

Clovis has scheduled a meet and greet at the Coralville Public Library on Wednesday, June 26th.  All three announced U.S. Senate candidates also have a fundraising deadline looming at the end of June.
