Among his favorite moments at work: When Stephen Colbert made fun of Scott Walker for nine minutes based on the “Thanks again and Molotov” letter that One Wisconsin Now uncovered.

Ross’s philosophy on mobilizing voters: “You gotta turn ‘em on, if you want to turn ‘em out.” He also notes that the largest voting bloc in America are GenX/Millennial voters, who also carry 85 percent of the $1.5 trillion dollars, 44 million member-strong student loan debt demographic.
