9780700622764: Winning Elections in the 21st Century

A national cochair of the presidential campaign of Barack Obama when few thought he could ever be elected, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky is here to tell you: Yes you can! And the book she recommends for candidates, campaign staff, volunteers, and citizens is Winning Elections in the 21st Century, a handbook for anyone who wants to know how campaigns are run and won today.

Written by longtime political veterans, both former elected officials, Winning Elections is steeped in old-fashioned political know-how and savvy about the latest campaign techniques, methods, and strategies using social media, vote analytics, small donor online fundraising, and increasingly sophisticated microtargeting. Using examples from across the United States, the authors discuss the nuts and bolts of state and local races, as well as "best practices" in national elections. A successful campaign, they assert and evidence confirms, merges the new technology with proven techniques from the past, and their book helps candidates, students, and citizens consider all the opportunities and challenges that these tools provide—never losing sight of the critical role that personal contact plays in getting voters to the polls.

At the heart of this book is the conviction that we need to win democracy along with elections. Accordingly Simpson and O'Shaughnessy write primarily about campaigns in which the maximum number of citizens participate, as opposed to those determined by a few wealthy individuals and interest groups. People power can prevail with the right candidates, issues, and support—and Winning Elections in the 21st Century shows how.

Review:

"Every candidate and campaign staffer should have this book. From building an organization to using the power of the Internet to elect better candidates, Simpson and O’Shaughnessy show us how to do everything to win elections."—David Orr, Cook County, IL, Clerk "Winning Elections in the 21st Century provides a birds-eye view to observe the inside story of candidates and campaigns. The authors deftly articulate what is missing in many academic books about politics and campaigns—reality." —Richard J. Semiatin, author of Campaigns in the 21st Century "Simpson and O’Shaughnessy give students of politics and political practitioners a superb update on state and local electioneering. The easily readable volume is chucked full of effective campaign practices based on the real-life experiences of the authors.”—H. Edward Flentje, author of Kansas Politics and Government "Winning Elections in the 21st Century uses current research findings and firsthand experiences to explain the most important elements of campaigning, including campaign organization, raising money, mobilizing voters, media relations, and effective use of the Internet and social media. Candidates and students of electoral politics will find insights in this accessible book."—David B. Magleby, editor of Financing the 2012 Election
