This week, we’re talking with one of my favorite people and hardest working conservative activists I’ve ever met, Toby Marie Walker. We’re going to talk to Toby about how she got started in politics, the craziness of living through the last 7 years as a TEA Party Leader, and find out what her biggest pieces of advice are for first-time candidates, from a grassroots leader and volunteer perspective.
This episode, we're talking to Brendan Steinhauser, a national grassroots organizer and campaign manager with a fantastic record.
Brendan spent seven years in Washington, D.C. working as the national Director of Federal and State Campaigns for FreedomWorks and he’s managed a number of campaigns, from state to federal level. Since 2012, Brendan has operated the Austin based Steinhauser Strategies with his bride Randan, providing full service public relations, government affairs and political consulting service.
