About Wedge Squared Strategies

How Wedge Squared Strategies Started

Wedge issues are what divide the two old political parties. Double wedge issues divide the people from politicians in both of the two old political parties. With the decline of both old parties, the winning coalition is built by breaking voters away from the two old parties and their broken partisan politics.

Wedge Squared Strategies was formed to provide the strategic and communications advice necessary for candidates to make greater impact in their elections, help organizations connect with their constituents, and help all of our clients rise to the next level. There are many firms that do what we do, but not many of them that work with and for libertarians.

By connecting candidates and organizations with the tools and team that they don't know that they need, we are empowering the gold wave that will sweep across America over the next decade and destroying the conventional political wisdom about what is possible.

Our Team

Our mission is to provide the right people and tools to our clients to bring them to the next level. Wedge Squared is a network of experienced campaign professionals, elected officials, legal experts, writers, and digital designers. We take a comprehensive approach to each of our client's needs.

What Our Clients Are Saying

As a communications consulting firm, you would expect us to be able to write persuasive copy about how good we are at what we do. Anything less would be like a psychic not knowing the winning lottery numbers. But even more persuasive than our hand-crafted prose are the real stories from our clients about what we did for them in their own words.

"“When we needed to meet a critical strategic fundraising deadline, Nicholas Sarwark was able to help us meet the goal in less than a week.”

Brad Barron, Candidate for US Senate, Kentucky

"The advice from Wedge Squared on focusing our mission and engaging with donors has been invaluable as we take the Free State Project to the next level.”
