Rachel Hoff

American Action Forum

Rachel Hoff is recognized as one of the preeminent young conservative leaders in Washington, D.C. She currently serves as the Director of Defense Analysis with the American Action Forum in Washington, D.C. Rachel previously served as Director of External Affairs for the Foreign Policy Initiative, and has worked at a think tank, on Capitol Hill, and for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). For the 2008 election cycle, she was Media Coordinator for the NRCC's Independent Expenditure unit, in which role she coordinated a $20 million program of TV, radio, and mail advertising in 35 Congressional districts around the country. On Capitol Hill, Rachel served as a Legislative Assistant and Research Analyst for Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), focusing specifically on foreign affairs and national security issues. Prior to that, she worked at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), doing research with several of AEI's prominent foreign policy experts on issues in the Middle East, democracy promotion, anti-terrorism strategies, and weapons nonproliferation.

Rachel has been an innovative and dynamic leader in the Young Republican National Federation (YRNF) for many years. In her capacity as Director of Media Relations for the 2008 election cycle, Rachel developed and implemented a strategy for national media outreach that has established the Young Republicans as the prominent voice of young conservatives, with YR leaders appearing on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and CBS – totaling over $2 million of earned media coverage. During the 2006 and 2007 mid-term and off-year election cycles, Rachel served as National Field Director and Campaign Committee Chairman for the YRNF, coordinating a nationwide effort to elect and re-elect Republican candidates at all levels of government. She executed the program that deployed hundreds of YR volunteers into targeted states in every region of the country for intensive campaign weekends. For her commitment to achieving excellence on behalf of the YRNF, Rachel was named 2006 Young Republican Woman of the Year.

Rachel was elected to represent Washington, DC as a delegate to the 2012 and 2016 Republican National Conventions and will serve on the 2016 Platform Committee.

Rachel was born and raised on a U.S. military base near Tokyo, Japan. She has also lived abroad in England and Ireland. She holds a BA from Tufts University in Political Science and Philosophy and a Certificate in Irish Politics from the University College of Cork. In 2004, Rachel was awarded the Dan Dutko Fellowship for public policy, which brought her to Washington.

Career History

Current

The American Action Forum is a 21st Century center-right policy institute providing actionable research and analysis to solve America’s most pressing policy challenges. Led by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former Director of the Congressional Budget Office, AAF injects forward-thinking ideas into the public debate that will build a better economic future, promoting innovative, free-market solutions to create a smaller, smarter government. AAF provides data-driven insight to today’s defining domestic policy challenges, utilizes both in-house policy experts and a broad network of outside experts, and deploys modern communications approaches to express ideas and effectively engage policymakers, thought leaders, academics, media, and the general public. In just the few years since its 2009 founding, AAF has proudly led the center-right policy debate on issues ranging from debt, health care, taxes, immigration, and more. Its work is routinely utilized by center-right leaders who understand that government has an important, but limited role in protecting freedoms, promoting a vibrant private sector, and serving US citizens more effectively. The American Action Forum is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and it is not affiliated with or controlled by any political group. Its focus is to educate the public about the complex policy choices now facing the country, and explain as cogently and forcefully as possible why solutions grounded in the center-right values that have guided the country thus far still represent the best way forward for America's future. It will stay neutral in elections, and by and large will leave its sister organization, the American Action Network, to engage in any appropriate direct legislative advocacy in support of the policy proposals it discusses. Like the Network, the Forum welcomes policy ideas consistent with its center-right values from any source, regardless of party affiliation, and aims to make its educational materials available to members of the public of all political stripes.
