His first national campaign was the 1972 McGovern race. He subsequently guided four other national campaigns. He played an important role in thirty winning campaigns for U.S. Senate, eight winning campaigns for governor, and winning mayoral races in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and other cities. He also consulted on successful campaigns in Israel and Britain. Shrum published his memoir, No Excuses, in 2007.
