Mastering Communication and Policy Like a Pro – Sean Davis

Mastering Communication and Policy Like a Pro - Sean Davis

Sean Davis is a co-founder of The Federalist. He previously worked as an economic policy adviser to Gov. Rick Perry, as CFO of Daily Caller, and as chief investigator for Sen. Tom Coburn. He was named by The Hill as one of the top congressional staffers under the age of 35 for his role in spearheading the enactment of the law that created USASpending.gov. Sean received a BBA in finance from Texas Tech University and an MBA in finance and entrepreneurial management from the Wharton School.

This week we’re re-airing an interview with Sean Davis that I did just over a year ago. It’s been the most downloaded episode on the podcast to-date, but it’s far enough back in the chronology that most of y’all probably haven’t heard it!… Even if you have heard it, I recommend giving it another listen. I just got done doing so and I found it very informative.

Understanding policy and how to communicate it is obviously important to anybody working in politics…but if you want to get to the point where your opinion on the subject matters, you’ve usually got to win an election. At this point, you’re probably asking, “Well, Raz, What should I do if I want to make sure I win my election?!” Hands down, the best thing I can recommend is to head over to learn.mycampaigncoach.com and sign up for our free course to figure out whether you’re prepared to run. Even if you’re already in the race, those videos and guides will walk you through essential questions…and I guarantee that you haven’t answered all of them!

The Story Behind Dan Crenshaw’s Incredible Win – Brendan Steinhauser

The Story Behind Dan Crenshaw’s Incredible Win - Brendan Steinahuser

Dan Crenshaw was our guest a few weeks ago and since then he won his runoff campaign by the widest margin of ANY Republican Congressional contest in Texas. He smoked the competition and this week we’re talking with his consultant, Brendan Steinhauser.

This week we’re bringing back on the podcast one of our first guests, Brendan Steinhauser. You can check out Episode 4 of this podcast to hear us talk about his background and how he runs Data-Driven Campaigns. Those skills were critical to winning the race we’re talking about today.

Just a few episodes ago, we talked with Dan Crenshaw. He’s a retired Lt. Commander from the Navy SEALS and was in a runoff election for the US Congress. He took second place in the original primary election by less than 200 votes, beating a woman who had self-funded millions of dollars into her race.

Dan and his team did an incredible job and Brendan helped quarterback much of that as the general consultant. Last week, they won the runoff and now they’re headed towards the general election in November.

What Losing and Legislating Teach about Winning in Politics – Matt Rinaldi

What Losing and Legislating Teach about Winning in Politics

Matt Rinaldi has won and lost campaigns. Sometimes by extremely close margins. After serving several sessions in the Texas State Legislature, he knows what it feels like to win and lose legislative battles. He knows why he’s there and what he believes in. More than that, he’s willing to fight for both with every political and procedural weapon available.

I hope y’all are having a great week and making things happen on the campaign trail! If you haven’t yet, make sure you subscribe and review the podcast. It’s by far the best way to help get the word out about what we’re doing and I greatly appreciate it!

A Man Forged in Fire Part 1 – Brian Birdwell

A Man Forged in Fire - Brian Birdwell

Texas State Senator Brian Birdwell is a loving husband, father and grandfather. He was also a 20-year Army Officer and the closest survivor to the point of impact at the Pentagon on 9/11. His story is incredible and this week he’s here to share it with us.

Our guest this week is a good man, great leader and dear friend to me. Within Texas’ political circles he is known to be a principled man and devoted Christian.

We had such a good time talking that we ran way long on the interview so I’m splitting it into two parts, the first of which you’re listening to and we’ll release the second half next week.

Brian Birdwell is a native Texan, decorated military veteran and lifelong conservative Republican currently representing Texas Senate District 22. Senator Birdwell was born here in my backyard of Fort Worth, Texas and served a bit over 20 years in the United States Army.
