Resident Fellow

Quentin Fulks is a nationally recognized campaign manager and political strategist, advising some of the largest, most expensive and consequential campaigns in American politics. 
Fulks served as campaign manager for the 2022 re-election campaign for Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock in his home state of Georgia. In this role, Fulks managed a nearly $200 million budget and more than 1,000 campaign staff to lead the statewide contest to victory: re-electing a Democratic United States senator in the state for the first time in more than three decades. Prior to leading Warnock’s campaign, Fulks served as deputy campaign manager for JB Pritzker’s successful 2018 gubernatorial bid, playing an instrumental role in flipping Illinois from red to blue. 
After Pritzker’s victory, Fulks served as his senior political advisor. While in this post Fulks founded and led Think Big Illinois, a 501c(4) dedicated to passing progressive policies to invest in and support working families. In 2020, Fulks managed “Vote Yes for Fairness,” a ballot initiative committee that sought to pass a graduated income tax in Illinois.

Prior to these leadership posts, Fulks graduated from American University with a Master of Public Policy and Political Science and from Georgia Southwestern State University with a bachelor’s in political science and sociology. He has served in positions at several national political organizations including Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), EMILY‘s List and Priorities USA, the leading Democratic Super PAC during the 2016 presidential election.

Originally from South Georgia, Quentin currently lives between Atlanta and Chicago with his chocolate lab, Lincoln.
