Tulsa, OK – Dr. Erik Zoellner, Campaign Manager to former Congressman Bridenstine’s first congressional primary victory, has joined Oklahoma political consulting firm Tomahawk Strategies. Zoellner previously served as one of the key architects of Jim Bridenstine’s major upset victory against then-Congressman John Sullivan. Zoellner has been admitted as a Partner. Zoellner has joined Managing Partners John Fritz and Josh Wagoner to help lead Republican campaigns across the nation. Zoellner will play an active role in the Oklahoma Capitol as well as being a political liaison to Washington, D.C.
Dr. Erik Zoellner has been a lifelong conservative. Most recently, Zoellner spent the past five years serving Tulsa Tech as the Assistant Director for Business & Industry Services, where he assisted the department’s exponential growth. Zoellner has remained politically active by supporting and strategically advising conservative candidates. Zoellner also serves as a reserve Sheriff’s Deputy for Rogers County Sheriff’s Office. Zoellner’s decision to move into political consulting full-time was inspired by recent events.
“With our nation in unprecedented times, I believe God is calling me to commit my full faith and best efforts to doing what I can to get our nation back on track. In discussions with John Fritz and Josh Wagoner, I believe Tomahawk Strategies’ proven track record of electing principled conservative leaders is unparalleled as well as their disciplined approach to winning campaigns with integrity. I’m excited to play a dynamic role as we continue to grow the firm by taking on the political establishment and the DC swamp to advance President Trump’s America First agenda,” Zoellner said, speaking about the transition.
Shortly after Congressman Bridenstine’s major political upset victory, Bridenstine sat down with GTR News for a debrief, where he spoke highly about Zoellner’s involvement, saying, “Erik has tremendous talent as demonstrated by this monumental achievement. Given his ability to create grassroots insurgency campaigns, I certainly understand why he may want to make this move. I wouldn’t want to run against him in Tulsa. He’s a winner and he is tireless and extremely focused in his pursuits. Whatever he chooses next, I’m proud to call him my friend and confidant. This primary was the experience of a lifetime and I’m so grateful that Erik was by my side through this remarkable primary win.”
Tomahawk Strategies is excited to expand the firm with such a dynamic political veteran that has a proven record of taking on the establishment and winning. As a Partner, Dr. Zoellner will also play a vital role as the firm looks to expand operations to better serve clients in Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
