Junior Fellow in Practical Political Leadership
John Wahl is a political strategist and campaign consultant with impressive achievements already, though only in his mid-twenties. He was elected to the Alabama Republican Executive Committee in November 2014, and is currently serving his first term in that position. In the 2012 elections cycle John worked as a Field Director for the Alabama GOP helping them gain control of every statewide elected office for the first time in Alabama history, and picking up a total net gain of 45 elected seats across the state.
Over the past several years Mr. Wahl has worked as a consultant for numerous political candidates and campaigns, including U.S. Senate candidate and National Tea Party leader Sharron Angle, Congressman Daniel Webster, and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. As Director of Communications, he held a senior role in a major campaign for the internationally recognized Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in his 2010 campaign for Governor, and also served as a grassroots coordinator for Chief Justice Moore’s 2012 campaign to regain his seat.
Mr. Wahl is currently the Chief Political Director for WT&S Consulting, and continues his work with state legislatures by authoring and supporting constitutional legislation. He has worked with dozens of local, statewide, and national campaigns, beginning, remarkably, in his teen years. He increasingly specializes in campaign planning, polling, and media relations. He is a founding member of the Freedom Alliance PAC, a business owner, and occasional political news author and commentator.
An avid student of the Constitution and the Founding Fathers, Mr. Wahl consistently throws his weight behind candidates, legislation and causes with those same values.
He is dedicated to restoring the values and principles that made America Great. In keeping with this he often finds himself explaining and debunking the dangers and hypocrisies of the modern so-called “conservative” movement, perhaps as much as he does the anti-constitutional “left”. A student of the American Constitution, he enjoys studying history and Constitutional law. A firm believer in the famous aphorism, that “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”, Mr. Wahl strives to understand the original intent of our Founding Fathers, and how their ideas and learned insights must be applied to issues we face today to maintain our liberty.
