You’re young. You’re smart. You’ve got your life planned out, a degree a few months away and so much business casual wear in your closet you could clothe an entire office staff. You’ve worked on countless campaigns from county commissioner to congressional seats. You were a Teen Republican, a College Republican and you’re a few years away from being a Young Republican. Your resume is impressive to say the least. You got it goin’ on. But you are not overqualified.
You are not above phone polling, door knocking, tabling, and sign waving – and not just on the day your candidate is coming to town or to the office. Don’t get caught up in that “_____ is below my pay grade” idea. Candidates themselves pound the pavement, even if it is just for a photo op.
I understand you may be bored with these mundane and everyday tasks but these are the small things that win elections. Sure you’ve been doing them for years. Wear that as a badge of honor. You don’t even need that script anymore and you probably have converted a few Blue Dogs in your day. Use this momentum to gain support for your candidate.
