Great Information No Matter Your Views

For anyone looking to run or looking to help others run, regardless of your political views this podcast is an invaluable resource. I utilized this podcast for my run and certainly attribute a portion of my win to the tips I got from this podcast.

Excellent Tool

I managed a US House race this year and my candidate used to mess with me about how much I referenced a podcast. That was until I had him listen to a few. Raz does a wonderful job of producing quality information and strategy that lead to campaign success. I highly recommend that anyone involved in campaigning, from interns to candidates, utilize this podcast.
