Known for his strategic vision, aggressive tactics, and political hustle, Christian Morgan brings fifteen years of politics and public policy experience to Husch Blackwell Strategies as Principal.
After guiding the Kansas Republican Party as Executive Director from 2007-2008, Christian joined Axiom Strategies, the largest Republican political consulting firm in the United States. As Vice President of Axiom Strategies, Christian developed a winning focus, guiding his over fifty Congressional campaigns to major victories from Arizona to North Carolina and in between. Campaigns steered by Christian from 2009–2012 helped Axiom win 11 “Poly Awards,” presented for excellence in direct mail and campaign strategy.
In 2013, Christian became Missouri Congresswoman Ann Wagner’s first Chief of Staff and was quickly identified by National Journal as one of five House freshman staffers to watch. For five years Christian directed Congresswoman Wagner’s staff in Washington, DC and in St. Louis, MO with a legislative portfolio focused on the Financial Services Committee, Foreign Affairs Committee, fighting the regulatory burdens of an ever-increasing federal government, and helping Congresswoman Wagner become the voice in Congress fighting the online sex trafficking industry.
Christian worked closely with House Republican Leadership as a result of Congresswoman Wagner’s position on the Elected Leadership Committee from 2013 - 2016 and as a Senior Deputy Whip under Majority Whip Steve Scalise since 2014.
In a four-year span, Christian helped Congresswoman Wagner pass a total of ten pieces of legislation through the United States House of Representatives with five bills becoming law. Christian effectively formed and managed a coalition of groups across the political and regulatory spectrum in Missouri and Washington, D.C. to pass the Stop Advertising Victims of Exploitation Act in 2015 – the first major piece of anti-sex trafficking legislation in thirteen years. He also guided the Small Company Simple Registration Act of 2015, beginning in the financial services committee and through the House and to the President’s desk in 2015 – now, small companies across the country have easier access to capital and can grow without interference from the federal government. In 2016, Christian helped Congresswoman Wagner become Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations on the House Financial Services Committee.
Christian has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and second B.A. in Sociology from the University of Kansas and earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri – Kansas City in 2004.
Christian and his wife, Catherine, live in the St. Louis area and try to keep up with their six children – Madison, Lauren, Christian, Regan, Jack and Schaefer.
