About this course: In this course, develop your campaign message to help people understand why you’re running and why they should support you. You also draft your stump speech and learn skills to stay on message during media interviews or when speaking publicly.
When you should take this course: Before you can start talking to voters and soliciting support, you need to know what you’re going to say to them. This course is ideal for candidates early in their campaign. However, if your message isn’t resonating well or needs some work, this course can help you retool.
