Steve Kush, a 2009 Christie campaign alum cut his teeth in the rough and tumble world of Philadelphia politics and is a widely recognized leader in the political community. Al Sullivan, writing for the Hoboken Reporter said, "[Kush leads a] high profile consulting firm and Frank Lewis of the Philadelphia City Paper wrote, "For every Steve Kush...there are a dozen nobodies." Steve Terrell writing for the Santa Fe New Mexican has referred to Kush as a "campaign guru" on more than one occassion and Troy Graham of the Philadelphia Inquirer has written about Kush's "bold and boisterous" campaign style.
His methods bring out the worst in the opposition to the point that it was once reported that the head of the New Jersey AFL-Cio invited Kush to "step outside" at a candidates' debate.
