His national awards include the nation’s best television commercial aired in a Gubernatorial race (1990), the best persuasion mail piece produced for a Presidential campaign (1996) and the nation’s best newspaper ad (2002). He has lectured on politics and political warfare at the United States Military Academy, the Marketing Research Association, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, and numerous colleges and universities. He also has served as a guest commentator on FOX News since 2008.

He received 1.5 million votes and forced Schumer to spend $19 million to defend his seat.
