Rules of Planning Your Campaign Budget

Jim Arnold



How Much Should You Spend and How? 

Planning a campaign budget takes cold calculation in order to avoiding winding up short of money during the closing and most critical days of the campaign.  As you begin to prepare a budget you should remember these simple rules. 

Rules of Thumb:
* Budget from Election Day backward - most people don’t make up their minds until the last two or three weeks of the campaign. Don’t make the mistake of running out of money just when people are starting to pay att

Wisconsin Campaign Finance Reporting -- Tools and Tricks

Benjamin A. Katz

Filing campaign statements with the State Elections Board (SEB) or any government agency can be a nerve racking and mentally exhausting experience.  Having to itemize nearly every transaction, complete complicated forms and follow obscure rules make reporting a challenging job.

Political Campaign Fundraising

Benjamin A. Katz
Mark Rackers

First, the obvious:  running a successful campaign is expensive.  The legitimacy of a candidate is directly proportional to the size of his coffers.  If you are the candidate, out of political necessity, fundraising is and should be your priority at the beginning, middle, and end of your campaign.  And at every stage in between.

Joe Rothstein



Technology is changing the way we work, shop, bank, exercise and most other areas of life.; Why would we expect political campaigns to be immune?  

It’s been 30 years since Robert Redford played the role of Bill McKay in “The Candidate,” which accurately represented what was then a whole new political form:

Polling for message+Poll-Driven TV spots+saturation TV buys+clever press manipulation.  That’s the way statewide campaigns and many congressional and municipal races have been run ever since.

The Art & Science of Signs and Graphics

Jim Fleming



Want a cleaner, brighter, more readable graphic image for your campaign?  

White Letters on a Dark or Contrasting Background are Better, Especially at Night.

Rendering your name in reverse—white against a contrasting bright or dark colored background—makes your name look larger and improves visibility, especially at night. In fact, according to a study by the Outdoor Advertising Institute, reverse messages are up to 40% more visible. That is the reason that Departments of Transportation use white type against dark green or dark brown backgrounds on the

Ol’ Dogs of Politics Versus New Technology

Art Murray



In today’s world, technology has soared so that those who are technologically current have a decisive advantage over those who are not.  You may consider this to be sad, but make no mistake about its truth. It’s a new political landscape out there and the tools of the modern campaign are changing with each and every new election cycle 

The truism for the 21st Century may well be “the candidate having the best campaign plan, the money to implement it, and the most current technology, will win every election.” 

In other words, waging the battle of a c
