With current pandemic, people are worried about their family’s safety and well-bring. Right now, voters have little concern for the US presidential campaign – even less in state and local races.
Despite the disruption, politics and elections aren’t going away. How politicians and candidates act during this time of crisis will define them come Election Day.
This raises a number of questions. How will this uncertainty impact your fundraising efforts? How can you connect to voters without events and face-to-face outreach? What will you, as a candidate, do to help others right now? What CAN you do, especially if you are not an incumbent with the ability to take official action?
These are uncharted times for down-ballot campaigns. The usual rules simply don’t apply. We’ve put together a selection of articles that we hope will help you deal with campaigning this election cycle.

Now is the time get creative. Stay safe and stay well.
“Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.” – Elie Weisel
