Take Republican Webinars and learn how they win elections- don't miss this important opportunity!

By SJ Otto
While I am opposed to the Republican Party and most of what it stands for there is no question in my mind that the party has perfected the art of winning elections. Over the past six years Republicans have won elections to the point where, according to Vox;

“And the vast majority — 70 percent of state legislatures, more than 60 percent of governors, 55 percent of attorneys general and secretaries of state — are in Republicans hands. And, of course, Republicans control both chambers of Congress…

If Donald Trump wins the presidential elections in November the Republican Party will control the senate, house, executive branch and possibly the Supreme Court. In other words they will control EVERY THING!
They are also winning in most states the same way they may be controlling the US government. In Kansas we saw how an extremely unpopular governor was brought back from the dead to win a second term. Despite outcries from the moderate wing of the Republican Party, as well as Democrats, he has been able to continue gutting of government services, such as education, in this Kansas.
So how do the Republicans keep winning elections? It is more than just producing popular candidates. They seem to have perfected the art of organizing their people and using every program and trick to maximize their election efforts. They leave nothing to chance. Most important they have been winning close elections where their organizing techniques made up for a lack of popular support for some candidates.
Now we have an opportunity to peak in and see what some of these techniques are. I received an e-mail from a pro-Republican outfit called American Majority. They are co-hosting some webinar series explaining how a candidate can use their many organizing techniques to win elections. While they expected these webinar series to go to conservative prospective candidates and political activists, they sent their messages to me. Now we on the left can now share some of these secrets.

I strongly suggest anyone interested in running for office or working on someone else's campaign to sign up for these webinars. This is information all of us on the left need. The first thing to do is to sign up and register by clicking here.
Then visit the scheduling page (click here).
Then the actual scheduling for these webinar's will be given here to those wishing to participate.
For a look at that page, this is what an activist will see:
