Running for Congress - thoughts and ideas?Submitted by zipporaid on Thu, 12/01/2011 - 18:27
A few friends of mine are thinking about running one of us for congress in upstate NY - We're thinking about taking a Libertarian/Progressive stance, and trying to build grassroots support. We're not all full on RP supporters, but really the only thing some differ on is SS/Medical - which I'm trying to convert :)
I'd like to hear any ideas, thoughts, or tips for getting this whole thing started - We're starting from scratch here, but
would like to try and co-opt a bit of the OWS as well as Tea Party message, to get more locals on board.
