Senior Vice President
Matt McNally, a Senior Vice President in Rasky Partners’ Washington, DC office, helps our federal clients advance their legislative and reputation objectives and shape policy debates. Given his extensive background as both a communicator and a trusted advisor in both the House and Senate, Matt has a deep understanding of how Congress works and how to craft a messaging campaign to reach its decision-makers.
Matt has 20 years of experience serving as a political and communications strategist for Democratic campaigns and office holders, including members of both House and Senate leadership. He has worked on or advised dozens of campaigns, from state legislative races to the most competitive Gubernatorial and Senate races of the past two decades. Throughout his work, he has built deep relationships at all levels of government, from municipal to federal, and on both sides of the aisle.
Before joining Rasky, Matt was Chief of Staff for Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney where he ran the Congressman’s caucus election to become DCCC chairman and continued to serve as his Chief while the Congressman oversaw one of the most successful mid-terms for a sitting President’s party in the last century.
Prior to his work in the House, he was the Director of Federal Affairs for the City of New York, representing the City in Congress and in front of the administration. In that role, he successfully developed public affairs and lobbying campaigns to protect and increase the almost $9 billion dollars New York City receives directly from the federal government, including housing, transportation, and education funds.
Matt also spent nearly a decade working on Senate races and in the United States Senate. He spent three cycles at the DSCC, before joining the Senate Democratic War Room and the DPCC, chaired by Senator Schumer. In 2006 he worked on the McCaskill Senate campaign, and in 2012 he was Deputy Campaign Manager for Tammy’ Baldwin’s historic first Senate race.
