Michael Cohen



In getting ready for next year’s races, we should all take note of what is going on right now on issues voters are seeing play out right now.  Issue campaigns in off-years can provide clues as to what might drive voter decisions on Election Day – even if it is over a year away.  Remember, voters always remember your positions and so do your opponents.

Background

Modern issue campaigns are interesting creatures created out of the 1993 campaign by the Clinton White House for healthcare reform.  A relatively obscure group, Health Insu
