Congress / HILL PEOPLE

Profile: John Stipicevic

Floor Director, House Majority Whip

June 22, 2011

Capitol Hill is a place where talented young people can thrive, and Stipicevic is proof of that. At just 27, he runs the floor operation for McCarthy. It’s a demanding and high-pressure job that involves regular interaction with the rank and file to track where the votes are on key issues. “I like it because the whip’s office is really where the rubber meets the road,” he said. Stipicevic—known as “Stip” by his colleagues—served in the two previous whip operations under Reps. Eric Cantor, R-Va., and Roy Blunt, R-Mo. Stipicevic started his political career while he was still in college at Catholic University and interned during his sophomore and junior years for Blunt, who gave Stipicevic his first break when his office was the only one to respond when Stipicevic blanketed 20 members with his résumé. By his senior year, Blunt offered him a job, and he moved quickly to the floor operation where he worked under Kyle Nevins, who is now deputy chief of staff for Cantor, the majority leader. “The relationship there is seamless; I think it’s good for both our bosses,” he said of his relationship with Nevins. A native of Yonkers, N.Y., Stipicevic worked as a golf pro through college. “I don’t play on a regular basis at all anymore, unfortunately. This place sort of absorbs you,” he said. That you can count on.
