“There is so much to learn about how to run and win a campaign. When I first ran for the Minnesota House of Representatives I used the information provided by The Campaign School and its training courses as the foundation for my campaign strategy.

“Each time the elections presented unique challenges that had to be overcome. Each time with his help I have been directed in the right path with political statements, mailers, and emails that have got the voters attention on important issues and maintained them though out the campaign. I would recommend Brian’s team of experts to accomplish what seems impossible.”

I started The Campaign School in 2015 because I was tired of seeing good people with good intentions and good ideas losing elections, because they didn’t know what to do, focused on the wrong things, or listened to people who gave them worthless advice.
