Event description

Description

I’ve batted 3 for 4 in elections, so let’s talk about my favorite moments from campaigning, as well as the two jobs a lot of you are probably interested in: Candidate and campaign manager. Yes, they’re very different. We’ll discuss the work of Let America Vote (the campaign I’m engaged in today) and how it came into being.

Special Guest: Executive Director of Let America Vote, Abe Rakov (Abe was also the campaign manager for both of my statewide campaigns)
