GROW Elect’s Moises Merino Named One of the “40 Best and Brightest Under 40”

Moises Merino, one of GROW Elect’s consultants and co-founders, was named as one of the “40 Best and Brightest Under 40” by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC).  He received this national honor at the AAPC’s Annual Convention in New Orleans. Merino’s recognition as one of the brightest young political minds in the nation comes as no surprise to those of us at GROW Elect who have seen him help numerous Latino Republican candidates pull off upset victories for offices across California. Congratulations, Moises!
