MR Services


Mitchem Rasmussen ("MR") is an advisory firm for political candidates, political professionals and advocacy and political organizations. At MR we believe a client's two most important resources are time and money. Our philosophy is simple, we provide our clients with strategy, organization and implementation expertise that will save them both time and money. We recognize that every candidate, professional and organization are unique. We begin every relationship with an examination of a client's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. We enhance strengths, fortify weaknesses, leverage opportunities and mitigate threats.

The political landscape is unpredictable to say the least and we step in at the beginning to help our clients navigate the landscape.

Though we focus on getting our clients off to the right start we are capable of staging interventions for clients that find themselves needing to hit the reset button.
