Try volunteering for a campaign next election cycle and see what it's like running a campaign on the ground first hand. Go to city council and school board meetings, listen to what people are talking about and develop your thoughts on the matter. Go to your local Democratic Party club meetings and network with people. Get your face out there and let them know you'd be interested in running a campaign of your own in the future.I came to a weird sudden realization last night that kept me up.
Everyone in my personal life knows I practically live and breathe politics. I do a lot of research, and offer my "annoying thoughts" on it frequently.
I'm not 100% certain or positive on this, but I'd like to see myself run as a potential candidate in 2022 as a state representative for MN. At least run for a city council position. I would be 22 years old.
I would probably run as a Democrat. I stayed up all night on accident thinking about how I would run. How I would advertise, let the word out, etc...
My only issue is zero college experience or prior political background. Running for city council and actually winning probably only means I make only $8000 a year.
State representative salaries start at $34,000 a year.
Senators starting at $45,000.
Since I would be running with nothing, I would have to have a campaign ran and funded by the people. Being in a deep red district, no idea if it's feasible.
I would need to do something radical, something to rally my demographic to. A perfect run for me would be college rallies, widespread Facebook ad campaign, a relatively large social media presence, and the spirit to rally everyone behind me under the notion of a big political defeat in a deep red district.
But, nothing hardly ever comes to fruition. Needed a trusted place to thought vomit before telling my friends and family this is something I am considering down the line. I could run for city council in a heart beat, only requirement is I live in the city and 18 or older.
I saw this as well. I personally hope she doesn’t get the nomination. Keep hearing things about Bernie or Biden possibly running as well. I love Bernie but I’m afraid he wouldn’t be able to win. I’d prefer Beto instead.Elizabeth Warren is running for president.
Not that anyone didn't see that coming.
I'm looking forward to her tearing 45 a new one if nothing else.
