It’s bittersweet, y’all!
I’ve gotten through the primary, both my candidates won, and my internships are starting to come to a close. I’ve really enjoyed working on political campaigns. The people, the energy, everything has been amazing and I’m hoping to volunteer as much as possible when the fall comes around, because that’s going to be one of the most important times leading up to the general election! I’d say my most favorite part of working on a campaign is seeing someone’s eyes light up when you talk about your candidate, and they get really excited to go out and vote. That is truly an empowering feeling, because you’ve impacted someone’s day and probably changed whether or not they were going to go out and take the time to vote at all.
As for campaign work itself, I have a feeling that this will not be my last time working on getting someone elected! You work SO hard and truly feel the reward when you see how you can create your own government, and you make a lot of new friends along the way that are just as passionate as you are. Now we just have to make sure our candidates win on November 6th!
