On September 16, 2013, Winslow announced that he would resign on the 29th in order to take a job as senior vice president and general counsel of Rimini Street, an enterprise software support firm.
Winslow earned his B.A. in Political Science from Tufts University, and J.D. from Boston College Law School. His professional experience includes serving as the presiding Justice for the Wrentham District Court from 1995 to 2002, the Governor's Chief Legal Counsel from 2002 to 2005, and general counsel for Americans Elect in 2012.

In May 2011, Governing Magazine named Winslow one of 17 "GOP Legislators to Watch." Each of the legislators was selected on the basis of qualities like leadership, ambition, and political potential.
In the 2012 presidential election, Winslow served as general counsel of Americans Elect, an organization whose stated goal is "to nominate a presidential ticket that answers directly to voters—not the political system." Winslow, whose duty was to help the organization achieve ballot access in all 50 states, was occasionally listed as Americans Elect's secretary for legal purposes. The group's attempt to form a "nonpartisan presidential ticket" through an online process ceased when no candidate reached 10,000 votes. The organization has been criticized and accused of tax and campaign finance violations for not revealing their donors. When confronted with the question, Winslow responded in a tweet, "How so? Why do you think the “Indians” wore facepaint when poking the British King in the eye? AE is fully complying with the law.”
Winslow was a 2013 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts for the seat being vacated by John Kerry. He was defeated by Gabriel Gomez in the Republican primary on April 30, 2013.
Winslow won re-election in the 2012 election for Massachusetts House of Representatives Ninth Norfolk District. Winslow was unopposed in the September 6 Republican primary and was unopposed in the general election, which took place on November 6, 2012.
