Tommy Hopper

In a winning career spanning three decades, Tommy Hopper has helped hundreds of Republicans and conservatives win. Mr. Hopper, 59, has served as President of The Hopper Group, LLC since forming it in 1993. The Hopper Group has helped over 80% of its clients achieve victory while winning over 200 local, state, and national campaigns and causes.

Hopper served as Chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party during the 1992 election cycle. Elected unanimously, Hopper was the youngest state party chairman in the nation. 

Describing Hopper’s tenure in Tennessee politics, veteran Capitol Hill reporter Tom Humphrey wrote, “Hopper has had more influence on state politics than almost anyone outside state government – and more than most inside.”

While managing the affairs of his company, Hopper has twice taken leave to serve the Republican National Committee. He represented the RNC in Chairman Haley Barbour’s native South as regional field director. In 1997, Hopper was named political director of the RNC and led the party to a clean sweep of races that year. 

Hopper’s RNC region led the nation in congressional wins in 1994, during the Republican sweep of the House of Representatives. In 1996, Chairman Haley Barbour called on Hopper to develop a mail program designed to save GOP control of the U.S. House. The Wall Street Journal reported on the success of the national mail plan.

A movement conservative, Hopper twice led successful statewide campaigns to defeat billion dollar tax increases.

Hopper has also served the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Hopper has helped over 200 clients, campaigns and causes win at the local, state and national level. As a campaign school teacher and Co-Director of the RNC Campaign Management College, Hopper has helped teach hundreds of operatives the tools they need to win.

Hopper has been married for 35 years and has one son. The Hoppers reside in Jackson, Tennessee.
