This week we’re revisiting an incredibly important topic that we haven’t touched in a few months: Opposition Research. John Lappe of Intellz joined us back on Episode 18 to discuss the topic but there’s more than we can talk about in just one episode.
This week, Willis Jones of Capitol City Research is here to discuss some of the biggest takeaways he’s learned from over 20 years of work in the business.
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.

Today we’re talking with Spencer Sullivan of Lean Campaign Strategies about how to run efficient campaigns. Saving money is always something I’m a fan of doing and there’s rarely enough on the campaign trail.
