If you paid attention to Missouri’s 2016 Gubernatorial election you likely saw the handiwork of a young republican attorney named Will Scharf. This self-styled movement conservative, Jewish GOP operative who originally hails from New York served both Catherine Hanaway and Eric Greitens during the 2016 election cycle.
With a mind for policy and a heart for public service, he quit a lucrative law practice at Bryan Cave, LLP for a low paying, policy director job on the upstart Catherine Hanaway for Governor campaign during the primary. After coming up short in that election he seamlessly transitioned into the Greitens Campaign in the same role.
Will comes from an elite background on the east coast that includes a prominent, successful family and degrees from Princeton University and Harvard Law School, though you would not know it from talking with him.
With the world to choose from after Harvard Law, he moved to Missouri and in his own words “found a home”. Mr. Scharf is a professional, a true believer in American conservatism, and at 30 years old the policy director for Governor-elect Eric Greitens. He is a rising star and someone you need to know if you care about making Missouri and exemplar of freedom.
