Being a conservative, Roger has worked mainly on the campaigns of Republican politicians. This included Richard Nixon, Jack Kemp, George W. Bush, Bob Dole, Donald Trump, and Ronald Reagan.

Stone co-founded a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm with Paul Manafort and Charles R. Black Jr. in 1980. In 1984, the firm was renamed Black, Manafort, Stone, and Kelly.
