Scott Jennings

Scott Jennings is RunSwitch co-founder and partner, providing senior level communications, public affairs, political and crisis communications counsel for national and international clients. When it comes to blending grassroots campaigns, communications tactics, and political strategy, Scott is one of the most experienced and successful operatives in the country. His expertise on political strategy, polling and public policy often lands him on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and other national media outlets who value his experienced insights.

Scott’s career has taken him across the country as part of four presidential campaigns and numerous U.S. Senate, congressional, state, and local races. He served in key roles in both of President Bush’s campaigns in 2000 and 2004, before becoming Special Assistant to the President and Deputy White House Political Director in 2005. At the White House, Scott served as a liaison to members of Congress, state and local officials, and key business, political and community leaders nationwide, and his office advised the president on numerous issues.

Scott has served in senior positions on several highly targeted races, helping U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (’02, ’08, ’14), Congressman Brett Guthrie (’08-present), and numerous local Kentucky candidates.

In 2014, Scott served as Senior Advisor to Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, a Super PAC that spent millions helping reelect Senator McConnell. He also served in a similar role for the Kentucky Opportunity Coalition, a 501(c)4 non-profit dedicated to educating Kentuckians about critical issues. That group has spent millions of dollars on issue advertising in Kentucky since 2013.

After leaving the White House in 2007, Scott joined a Louisville PR firm as Director of Strategic Development, growing the business by 300% during his tenure. Before politics, Scott was an award-winning broadcast journalist for WHAS Radio from 1996-2000.

Scott was born on October 26, 1977, in Princeton, Kentucky. He grew up in Dawson Springs, Kentucky, and graduated from the University of Louisville. Scott is married to the former Autumn Stiff of Whitesville, Kentucky, and they have three sons, Everett, Winston, and Thatcher, and one basset hound, Rufus, who was rescued by the family in January of 2010.

Scott writes a regular column for the Louisville Courier-Journal which appears every third Wednesday. You can regularly find him quoted by CNN, The New York Times, the Associated Press, Politico, The Hill, Roll Call, National Journal, National Public Radio, U.S. News & World Report, and other news outlets.
