Publisher's Summary

Winning Your Election the Wellstone Way is based on the work of Wellstone Action, a leading-edge progressive training center that has instructed thousands of political activists, campaign managers, and volunteers, of whom more than two hundred have gone on to run for office and win. Jeff Blodgett and Bill Lofy analyze the crucial lessons learned from many successful (and several losing) campaigns and demystifies what it takes to run for-and win-a political seat.

With detailed and informative examples from progressive campaigns at every level throughout the United States, Winning Your Election the Wellstone Way combines grassroots organizing with political strategy, articulating a bold populist agenda.

If you have ever considered volunteering for a political candidate, working for a campaign, or even running for public office yourself, Winning Your Election the Wellstone Way is the key resource you need to devise a sophisticated, progressive, and successful strategy and, ultimately, affect people's lives for the better.

Computer read book

I will be seeking a refund on this title. The book itself is considered the best grassroots books in existence, this is not narrated by a person, but is a computerized read. Its horrible and the computerization does not flow well and seems stuttered.

Progressive drivel

I missed the mention at the very end of the description that this was focused on progressive campaigns. Still I thought maybe it would talk about stuff that would apply to a conservative campaign as well. I've listened to a bit of it now and so far it's nothing but a gushing admiration to this Wellstone guy and the work he has done to help destroy America and make it the progressive wasteland that it is today. Plus the narrator is boring as hell.

A lot of out of date info in 2019

Although a good starting point for basic information, would have to say that a lot of the more advanced information is now too dated and inaccurate or at least lacking in 2019. Would love to hear and updated version of this book.

Fantastic political campaigning overview!

Good: As someone completely new to political campaigning, but will be volunteering for 1 month on a major campaign in the US soon, this has given an awesome insight into the best practises to achieve success! Really enjoyed this book - Smart thinking backed up by real experience.
Bad: The only downside to this book is that it’s outdated. There’s very little emphasis on digital strategy (which plays such a huge role now) or the use of technology. Not necessarily a bad thing, but readers should be aware this is more focused on American elections and talks only of ‘progressive’ parties.... however these teachings can be relevant to any campaign globally!
