About Campaign Research + Strategy
As a one-stop destination for your campaign or business, the Campaign Research + Strategy team believes it’s important you have total access to us. Our philosophy is no campaign or project is too large or too small to benefit from our dedication, hard work and experience.
Formally trained in the field of journalism and mass communications, Tige Watts is the President of CR+S and he enters his 25th year in politics. In that time, he has helped more than 1,000 candidates, referendum committees, grass-roots organizers and members of the commercial sector achieve the results they desire. He has been quoted by a number of local, regional and national media outlets on various political issues and the impact they bring.
The staff of CR+S' knowledge, experience and ingenuity are the driving forces behind our full services and instrumental in its successful 85% win ratio for political campaigns. In addition to pulling off major upsets, huge win margins for incumbents and running successful campaigns that inspire communities to support individuals and causes, CR+S has also helped secure the passage of bond referenda which has directed nearly $5 BILLION in public tax dollars toward better schools, roads, and environmental causes.
In addition to going the extra mile for our clients, CR+S proves its strong commitment to the community. The team has given its time to help literacy programs in Columbia; donate to causes helping the less fortunate, like Families Helping Families and Harvest Hope Food Bank; support our local arts community; serve on the boards and contribute to a wide array of community-based organizations; and make a number of financial and in-kind donations to non-profit organizations.
