(Kansas City/Washington, DC): Axiom Strategies, the largest Republican political consulting firm in the country, announced a completed acquisition of High Cotton Consulting, a D.C.-based fundraising firm.

“I’m very proud that High Cotton has become part of the Axiom family,” said Alexandra Kendrick, High Cotton’s founder. “Axiom Strategies’ reputation for leading winning campaigns through innovative ideas and outworking the competition speaks for itself. I’m excited to add fundraising to the suite of services Axiom offers clients.”
“We are thrilled to have High Cotton as part of the team,” said Jeff Roe, Axiom’s founder and CEO. “Alexandra is one of the most effective fundraisers in the country, and her talent for fundraising and her work ethic are unrivaled assets to clients.”

About Alexandra Kendrick:
Alexandra Kendrick was raised in Richmond Hill, a small Southern town on the coast of Georgia. She became involved in politics at an early age through her mother’s political volunteer efforts.
Prior to moving to Washington D.C., Alexandra worked in real estate for almost a decade. During this time, she served as Chairwoman for the Chatham County Young Republicans and as National Committee Woman for the National Young Republicans from the State of Georgia.
While volunteering on the 2004 and 2006 campaigns for Congressman Max Burns, Alexandra became involved with Congressman Jack Kingston’s campaign efforts and was offered a position in Congressman Kingston’s congressional office in 2008. In 2010, Alexandra took over Kingston’s fundraising efforts.
In January of 2014, Kingston decided to run for the open Senate seat of retiring Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss. Axiom Strategies served as the General Consulting firm and Alexandra was named Finance Director for the campaign. Under her leadership, the Kingston for Senate finance team led the field every quarter, raising a total of $7,500,000 for the cycle.
After Kingston lost a competitive primary runoff in July of 2014, Alexandra formed High Cotton Consulting, a firm which specializes in fundraising for Republican candidates. It quickly grew to become one of the top 10 of firms based in Washington, D.C. In 2017 it became aligned with Axiom Strategies.
While a southern girl at heart, Alexandra loves Washington, D.C. and is lucky to call both it and Georgia home.
