Opposition Research Firms Stanford and Caskey to Merge

Big news this week in the land of opposition research firms. Jason Stanford of Stanford Campaigns and Will Caskey of 3rd Coast Research will merge. We like both firms and if you can’t hire us, you will be well served by the new firm.

Jason has what must be one of the best quotes ever on opposition research (really, there are so many!):

Cut-rate research is a lot like cut-rate dentistry; it hurts and it’s expensive to fix.

See the details in Jason’s post and Will has a piece here.

Good luck guys!

Update: Will Caskey is now with WayForward Research.
