Joe Trippi (born June 10, 1956) is a long-time American Democratic campaign worker and consultant. Trippi has worked on the presidential campaigns of Ted Kennedy, Walter Mondale, Gary Hart, Dick Gephardt, Jerry Brown and most recently John Edwards. He served as campaign manager for presidential candidate and former Vermont governor Howard Dean.
Trippi is a member of the advisory board of Why Tuesday?, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to increasing voter participation. Trippi is also a member of the board of directors for the conservation organization the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy.
In late January 2010, Andrew Romanoff, who challenged the incumbent Senator Michael Bennet in the 2010 Colorado Senate election, announced his campaign had hired Trippi as one of its four new consultants.
In an interview with MSNBC, Zimbabwean opposition activist Roy Bennett, who had been arrested and jailed by the Mugabe government, credited Trippi with helping to ensure his release by increasing international pressure on Mugabe.
In 2011, during the Bahraini uprising, Trippi was on the Bahrainin payroll and said he "had no problem working for them" because they were "one of the progressive countries in the Middle Eastern Gulf." Trippi ended his work in Bahrain in April 2012, following the report of Bahrain's National Commission, which was tasked with following up on the recommendations of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry.
