Drew claims his first experience in politics was riding his bike around town posting signs for Michael Dukakis. He once claimed that this is why Dukakis won his county in 1988.

Drew graduated from Hermitage High School in 1993 and attended College of the Ozarks, University of Arkansas at Monticello, Southern Arkansas University, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Marshall University in West Virginia, and Catholic University in Washington, DC, amongst others.

He served as an intern for Sen. Tim Hutchinson (R-AR) for two weeks before being fired.

While a student at UAM, Drew made the first of several runs for political office. In 1998, he waged a write-in campaign for state house in Arkansas, garnering 1% of the vote. However, he often claims that he received 14% of the vote in this race, and the reason for the discrepancy between this and the actual result was due to the incompetence and vindictiveness of former Arkansas Secretary of State Sharon Priest.

Four years later, he sought the nomination for the city council in Warren, Arkansas, but was again heavily defeated.

Drew entered the primary for county judge in Bradley County, a position similar to county commissioner in other states. Drew was heavily defeated in the Democratic primary, coming in last in a field of four.

He explored several races in 2006, including the U.S. House in Wisconsin, Lt. Governor of Arkansas, and Mayor of Little Rock. He billed himself as the first openly gay man to seek the office of Lt. Governor in Arkansas.

According to ArkTimes, he also lost a race for Vice-President of the local Young Democrats chapter, losing by approximately 105 to 7.

More recently, he ran for Little Rock school board in 2007, receiving eight votes. In 2008, he announced his candidacy for a city council seat in Little Rock, but did not make the ballot once again.

Drew was a student at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock from approximately 2005-2009. Of course, he did not graduate. He also participates in drag, and was awarded Miss Gay Central Arkansas in 2007. He won some other titles too, but was later stripped of them.

In 2009-2010, he pretended to run for U.S. Senate, before dropping out. He then moved to Alaska, and worked for Democratic lieutenant governor nominee Diane Benson. Much of that time after that, he lived out of a hotel, looking for work. Benson mentioned that Pritt was not very dependable.

In 2011, Drew Pritt organized a fundraiser to help Latseen Benson, a wounded Army veteran (and son of Diane Benson, Pritt's former boss) buy a house. He stole $3000 from this endeavor, after which time he fled to Arkansas. He is believed to be in the Little Rock area.
