On November 2, 22-year-old Will Haskell flipped one of the most entrenched seats in the Connecticut state senate from red to blue.
Connecticut's 26th senate district has been held by Republicans since Richard Nixon was president.
And its incumbent, Toni Boucher, had worked in the legislature since before Haskell was born.
But with a nimble digital strategy, a campaign that involved a lot of door-knocking, and a pair of endorsements from former President Barack Obama and Senator Chris Murphy, Haskell ousted Boucher and helped Democrats tie the state's senate.
Before all that, Haskell worked at Business Insider.
He says it's because he prioritized knocking on doors and for reaching voters on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Haskell says he wants to meet voters where they already are, whether on the street or on their phones.
