Candidates lose their elections for a variety of reasons.

Here are three common mistakes of losing candidates:
  1. Failure to develop in advance a comprehensive campaign plan, including a timetable and a realistic budget.
  2. Spending too much of the campaign funds on paid media and polling and not enough on building a grassroots organization of large numbers of people in campaign activities.
  3. Failure to respond properly to continuing negative information, whether from an opponent, the news media or both. Ignoring a continuing negative issue won't make it go away.
All of these come down to one simple fact... When you are prepared for potential problems, you can avoid the most common mistakes. 

You can start late, but you can't start too early. The Future Candidate School is designed to help you prepare for your future campaign. It will help you avoid the common mistakes other candidates made. 

You will be prepared and have a plan.
