We’re back again this week with our new podcast format, diving deep into some subjects that folks have asked for us to cover on Facebook. Today we’re talking about Vetting Candidates, building your campaign calendar, the campaign logistics framework for a strong campaign and different ways to contact voters.
With Roy Moore’s defeat in the Alabama Senate this week, lots of people are wondering how the secrets of his past weren’t discovered earlier. His case is an aberration since it’s hard to keep those kinds of things hidden for so long, but there are some common sense steps that people can take to make sure that candidates they support won’t surprise them.
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!
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!
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.
