Cayce McCabe

A Senior Vice President at Putnam Partners, Cayce McCabe is an experienced television and radio producer with years of grassroots campaign experience. He combines the nuts-and-bolts operations approach of a campaign manager with the tactical and strategic mindset of a general consultant to effectively advise clients on all aspects of campaigns.

In 2014, Cayce was a lead producer of television and radio advertising for Putnam Partners’ highest profile clients, including four U.S. Senate races, two gubernatorial races, and several congressional, state constitutional, and independent expenditure campaigns. That year, he was also on the strategy team for the winning campaigns of U.S. Senator Tom Udall (NM), Governor John Hickenlooper (CO), and Governor Gina Raimondo (RI).

Prior to joining Putnam Partners, Cayce was a leading political strategist in Massachusetts. He has managed campaigns at the congressional, mayoral, state legislative and city council levels. In his years as a campaign manager and general consultant, Cayce became known for defying conventional wisdom and delivering results with underdog candidates. He specialized in working with progressive Democrats, women candidates and candidates of color.

Notably, Cayce was Campaign Manager for Linda Dorcena Forry, a Haitian-American state senator who won a razor-thin victory in a district that includes historic South Boston. The district had previously only been held by Irish-American men, and her victory was featured on MSNBC and in The New York Times.

A do-it-all campaign operative, Cayce has worked in virtually every aspect of campaigns including: advising potential candidates as they decide whether to run; graphic design of direct mail, logos and other campaign materials; raising over a million dollars in campaign contributions for a Boston mayoral campaign; speech writing, debate prep, press and crisis communications; voter- targeting, field and GOTV; managing large campaign staffs and running the day-to-day operations as a campaign manager; and acting as general consultant and overall campaign strategist.

Cayce was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. He graduated with a B.S. in Political Science and a J.D. from Florida State University.
