  •  Legal Component? (8+ / 0-)


    I think this is an awesome idea.  Although I have a question about the resources you are providing to the candidate.  Media, campaign consulting, etc. are all excellent but what I notice is missing is legal advice.

    I know from running my own PAC in 2004 that learning campaign finance law is a daunting task and there are not a lot of lawyers who practice campaign finance/election law exclusively.  As a matter of fact that's why I'm in law school right now (at 40!).

    Does your organization have contacts with or attorneys on staff that can advise fledgling candidates on reporting requirements, filing procedures, and the like?  Or, in the event of a tight election, represent them in court proceedings?
