History in the First Person: Running a Political Campaign

Political advertisements may be what most of us remember about any political campaign. But as powerful as these advertisements may be, it takes a great deal more than them to run a political campaign. It takes money. It takes volunteers. It takes organization. It takes an understanding of election laws. It takes time—lots of time—and so much more. In this election year, go behind the scenes for History in the First Person: Running a Political Campaign and see what it’s like to run a political campaign as you learn from political scientists and campaign officials who have done just that.
