As a campaign manager, Trippi has run presidential, Senate, gubernatorial and mayoral campaigns. He was selected by former Vice President Walter Mondale to manage Iowas first-in-the-nation caucuses in 1984 and later went on to run several key states for the Mondale for President campaign. In 1988, Trippi was the Deputy National Campaign Manager for Richard Gephardts presidential campaign.
In 2004, he was National Campaign Manager for Howard Deans presidential campaign, pioneering the use of online technology to organize what became the largest grassroots movement in presidential politics. Through Trippis innovative use of the internet for small-donor fundraising, Dean for America ended up raising more money than any Democratic presidential campaign in history, all with donations averaging less than $100 each. Trippis innovations have brought fundamental change to the electoral system and will be the model for how all future political campaigns are run.
