Dealing with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly on the Campaign Trail

Running for office will give you some of the best and worst experiences of your life. Representative Stephanie Sawyer Clayton of Kansas and Representative Brittnay Pettersen of Colorado share their stories and strategies! Hear the good, the bad, and the ugly on the campaign trail and how to deal with the nasty mail piece, when someone says something mean, and much more.
