Atlas Political Consulting

Map out a plan.

Pound the pavement.


Nathan Babcock is a Raleigh-based political consultant with over a decade of experience advising winning campaigns in North Carolina.

He has directed over $14 million in campaign expenditures in 96 races across the state – winning over 80 percent of those races. Since launching Atlas Political Consulting in 2020, Nathan has advised 19 candidates in a general consultant roll, winning 18 of those races.

Nathan’s career in politics began in 2010 when then-Minority Leader Phil Berger and NC Republican Senate Caucus Director Jim Blaine hired him to work with State Senate candidates. After going 11 for 11 in target races that year, winning a Republican Senate majority for the first time in 140 years, everyone involved earned promotions and Nathan became the Caucus Political Director.

Nathan left for the North Carolina Chamber in 2012 to start its independent expenditure (IE) operation and lobby for the state’s organized business community. At the Chamber, Nathan lobbied for landmark conservative victories including tax reform and transportation funding reform. After the 2016 election cycle, Nathan joined the Parker Poe law firm as a contract lobbyist, still dabbling in politics as an advisor to various IE organizations. Along the way he was named one of the “Most Influential Lobbyists” by the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research.

In 2020, Nathan returned to where he started, helping North Carolina legislative candidates and other Republicans run winning campaigns, launching Atlas Political Consulting.

Nathan lives in Raleigh with his wife, Amber, and their four active children.

“We’re fortunate to have Nathan on the Senate Caucus team. He was a major reason we took the majority in 2010 and held it in 2020. He’s thorough and sharp – a first-rate political mind.”

Phil Berger, NC Senate President Pro Tempore

“Few people understand the state’s political landscape like Nathan does. He knows all the districts and the key players. He is of the highest character and knows how to win.”

Gary Salamido, President and CEO, NC Chamber
