WASHINGTON, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — DDC Advocacy (DDCA), a leading international public affairs and issue advocacy firm, is the proud winner of four prestigious 2014 Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC).

DDCA took top honors in the highly competitive Television and Radio categories, bringing home three gold Pollie Awards. Its fourth Pollie, a silver, was awarded in the Internet category.
