Mallory Ruhling Hodge

When she was seven years old, Mallory Hodge did some basic math and calculated that she’d be old enough to run for president in 2028. Until then, she works at ColdSpark as one of western Pennsylvania’s most effective fundraisers and fundraising advisors, generating nearly $3 million and helping maintain Republican control in an array of elective bodies.

Her clients include elected officials like U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy, U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the National Republican Congressional Committee, Pennsylvania Speaker of the House Mike Turzai, State Rep. Eli Evankovich, and State Sen. Guy Reschenthaler.

A graduate of Queens University in Charlotte, N.C., she holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and is also certified in their professional golf management program. The highlight of her college career was playing 18 holes of golf with her idol, Condoleezza Rice.

She lives in Oakmont with her husband, Andrew, and puppy, Liberty, and is an Elder at Verona Presbyterian Church.
