Winning At the Ballot Box and In The Capitol – Micah Cavanaugh

Podcast Interview with Micah Cavanaugh

From volunteering in Kentucky to Consulting and Staff roles in Texas, Micah Cavanaugh has built a proven record of helping conservatives win!

Thank y’all for downloading this week’s episode! As I mentioned in last week’s podcast, here in year two of the How to Run for Office podcast, we’re changing things up a bit and I’m alternating between our standard interview format and deeper dives into specific subjects. I think this is going to be a way to take a more in-depth look at some of the common coaching problems that we get to help campaigns with, while still keeping a heavy focus on the interviews that you’ve gotten used to over the last year.

That said, y’all have the veto power over this change up. I want to make sure that we’re delivering valuable information to help you win elections and if you have input, advice or criticism, I want to hear it. Shoot me an email to Raz@mycampaigncoach.com and let me know what you think. Heck, if you think it’s a cool idea and you like what we’re doing, shoot me a note about that as well!

One of my favorite parts about the work I do in politics is the awesome people I get to work alongside. Our guest this week is somebody I’ve worked with for several years and it’s awesome seeing the impact that he’s having in the Texas State House.

19 Canvassing Tips to Win Your Campaign! – Raz Shafer

Podcast Interview 19 Canvassing Tips Raz Shafer

Canvassing is a huge part of any strong campaign but what makes the difference between a good and bad program? These 19 canvassing tips will make all the difference!

I can’t believe we’ve got an entire year of podcasting under our belts! Thank y’all so much for downloading, listening and supporting our work at My Campaign Coach. It’s a whole lot easier to stay motivated and keep producing this with thousands of folks downloading every month then back when we first started with just a hundred or so.

All of our episodes to date have been interviews. They’ve been a great chance to get inside the minds of some of the movement’s best candidates, operatives and volunteers but we haven’t been able to dive really deep on one subject at a time. So, it’s my podcast and I want to experiment a bit!

Are your Political Opponents People or Caricatures?

Your view of political opponents can empower or destroy your campaign. Democrats learned this lesson the hard way last year. Learn from their mistake!

I just got done reading an Esquire article about the Presidential election last year (how has it been a year already?!). It’s a compilation of interviews from both Republicans and Democrats, campaign staff, commentators and journalists. Check it out if you haven’t read it!

One of the things that came through so clear and tragic to me was the despair they felt after her loss. I’m not talking about, “We lost an important election that I was sure we’d win,” kinda sad. So many felt a visceral fear for their children, country and even lives.

6 Wins, 3 Terms, and He’s Just Getting Started! – Rep. Jonathan Stickland

Podcast Interview with Jonathan Stickland

Through 6 years, 6 elections and 3 legislative sessions, Jonathan Stickland has learned a lot and earned his status as one of Texas’ most conservative legislators. Today he’s here to share that knowledge with us!

By any measure, our guest this week is one of the most conservative members of the Texas State House of Representatives. Jonathan Stickland is also a good friend and client of mine.

Jonathan has been a conservative rockstar in the Texas State House, playing a central role in most of the major political battles that have played out during his three terms in office. As a result of his convictions and the political threat he’s posed to his opponents, every one of his elections have been stiffly contested.
