Ian has been involved in politics since 1998 and has always been a Republican

25+ Years in Republican Politics

Ian started the Massachusetts Republican Society PAC, a chartered organization of the state GOP, at 25 years old. He led the group to 950 donors in just a few years, including high-profile business leaders Albert Merck (Merck), Ben Cammarata (TJX), and Ted Cutler (Sands).

He has learned strategy in unconventional ways, like serving as communications director for Republican Harvard educated attorney Jack Robinson in 2000, who made daily news being attacked by both the establishment Republicans and his opponent, U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy.

In 2002, Ian took on the establishment’s incumbent liberal governor by leading the ‘draft Mitt’ movement and was briefly appointed to the Romney for Governor campaign.

From founding No Mask Nevada in 2020 to helping friend and Breitbart Editor Mike Flynn run for congress in Illinois, Ian has assisted dozens of unique campaigns and movements over the years.

A candidate himself in 2022, Ian received 40% of the vote for Nye County clerk while simultaneously running a successful challenger campaign for commissioner. Ian has been a staff writer for various online news websites and a morning talk show host on WRPW and WWHP in Illinois.

A passionate defender of the constitution and for freedom, Ian led movements like a 2001 bipartisan effort to stop a law that would allow for primary enforcement of seat belts, forming No Mask Nevada PAC in 2020 to protest the mandatory mask mandate, and helping U.S. Senator Ted Cruz win a district in Illinois for the presidential primary in 2016 after Ian endorsed Cruz on his radio station and helped coordinate events.

Ian attended the 2016 Republican National Convention as a member of the media and supported President Trump the moment he was selected as the nominee.

Ian served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard and the U.S. Army Reserve as a combat engineer from 1997-2003.
