Brad is a Senior Advisor to the YG Network.
Prior to joining YG, Brad earned a reputation as one of Majority Leader Eric Cantor most trusted aides, most recently serving as his Deputy Chief of Staff. Dayspring oversaw the communications operation in the Majority Leader’s Office and served as a top strategic and political advisor to Cantor. POLITICO noted that in this role, Dayspring established himself as one of “the House Republican Conference’s savviest” operatives, and the National Journal wrote that, “he is regarded—in both the policy and communications realms—as one of the best Republican operatives in Washington.”
In addition, in the Fall of 2010, he developed and executed the public relations strategy for the New York Times Best Selling book, “Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders,” authored by Cantor, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, and Budget Chairman Paul Ryan. Dayspring’s other experience on Capitol Hill includes becoming the first full-time Communications Director for the conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC) under Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Communications Director for Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Deputy Press Secretary to then Budget Chairman and current Ohio Governor John Kasich.
Brad’s experience also extends to the Executive Branch, having served for nearly three years as President George W. Bush’s Deputy Director of Press Advance in the White House. In this role, he managed national media coverage and logistics for over 400 presidential events and visits. He traveled with President Bush, First Lady Laura Bush, Cabinet Secretaries, White House senior staff and the national press corps as part of the official United States delegation to over twenty foreign countries and forty-five states.
Additionally, Dayspring worked as the Director of Media Relations for the National Restaurant Association. He has been named to three consecutive Roll Call Fabulous 50 Lists of Capitol Hill’s leading Democratic and Republican staffers, as well as to The Hill’s “35 Staffers to Watch Under 35.” In 2011 and 2012, Brad was named to Washington Life’s “The Young and the Guest List,” an annual listing of “Washington D.C.’s most influential movers and shakers under 40.” He graduated from Villanova University with a BA in Political Science and was the Captain of their NCAA Division I Independent ice-hockey team.
