Jim L. Burdge



The Saga of a Lost Campaign Being Won 

As campaign consultants we must offer our clients more than just the usual fare of voter targeting, issue research, polling, message crafting, and all the nuts and bolts of campaigning.

We must be aware of the election laws and the procedures used by local election officials to conduct the elections and enforce these laws. In close elections, the consultant must be ever vigilant for anomalies and obvious changes in voter patterns on a precinct-by-precinct basis.

Overcome your Fears & Become a Great Speaker

Randall P. Whatley

All the great speakers were bad speakers at first. - Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1860

You are already a great speaker. You give great presentations every day.

Media Tours Are Key to Organizational Messaging

Al Madison



At its essence successful public relations is all about story telling -- and every campaign or non-profit, no matter who they may be, has a great story to tell.  It may take a while to identify and massage your campaign’s story and it may also take some practice to refine delivering the messages and preparing for questions, but once you’ve settled on the dimensions of your story and who is best equipped to tell it, then it becomes very important to determine which audiences and supporters you need to influence ­who needs to hear and understand your story.

Campaign 101: Learning from Major Campaigns, Offers Insights into Running Local Elections

Brad Bannon



In the same way that high school football players can learn a lot about the game by watching the pros play in the Super Bowl, local political activists should be able to learn a lot about campaigns by watching the players in the presidential race.

By the same token, the people who work in presidential races can easily forget the basic rules of politics they learned when they started out as local political activists. In fact if you examine closely the inside workings of the Kerry campaign, as the editors of Newsweek did in the new book, ‘Election 2004’, it is clear that
