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!

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.
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!

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.
