Meet Corey Day

For the past eight years, Corey Day served as the Executive Director of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party. From fundraising to electing progressive leaders, the Minnesota DFL is noted as one of the strongest, well-funded, and best managed Democratic parties in the nation. From holding back red waves to making electoral history at both the state and national levels, Corey was at the center of building a state Democratic Party that has become the Midwest’s North Star.

With a background in managing campaigns, building coalitions, and grassroots organizing, Corey played a key role in this success. Corey is bringing this incredible wealth of experience to BLUE OX STRATEGIES.

Corey has worked coast-to-coast building strong relationships with influencers in progressive politics, noted corporate leaders and decision makers at local, state and national levels of government. From working for the mayor of Los Angeles to serving on multiple presidential campaigns, Corey has earned a reputation for his visionary leadership and ability to make resourceful decisions to reach ambitious goals.

Corey’s experiences include overseeing million dollar budgets; designing successful campaigns focused on grassroots; building lasting, valued relationships with activists, labor leaders, and elected officials; and inspiring the next generation of diverse leaders.

Through BLUE OX STRATEGIES, Corey will leverage his experience and work with clients as a partner in progress to make great things happen.

Guerrilla Campaigns
