If we’re going to win in 2022, not only do we need candidates who share our values but candidates familiar with the most effective strategies for voter turnout, engagement, fundraising, and the many other necessary skills to win.

So you'll help me learn how to run for office?

Yes!

The Republican Party of Texas is proud to work with the Leadership Institute to offer campaign trainings throughout the state of Texas. The Leadership Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan educational organization dedicated to teaching the most effective strategies for campaigning, fundraising, grassroots organizing, youth politics, and communications.

The schools in 2019-2020 were successful in training thousands of potential candidates and activists on skills necessary to keep Texas red. If you were unable to attend a training, there are online resources available by contacting the Leadership Institute.

If we’re going to win in 2022, not only do we need candidates who share our values but candidates familiar with the most effective strategies for voter turnout, engagement, fundraising, and the many other necessary skills to win.

Potential Candidates – if you are exploring whether you might run for a non-federal public office, Texas law requires you to file a Campaign Treasurer Appointment. For further information, visit the Texas Ethics Commission (TEC) website at: https://www.ethics.state.tx.us/resources/cf/

When and Where?

This summer, the Leadership Institute will offer the Texas Campaign School Tour: 32 campaign workshops across Texas, from El Paso to Houston and Amarillo to Brownsville — with 28 stops in between.

These campaign workshops are the secret weapon for conservatives who want to run – and win – with smart, effective, genuinely grassroots-focused campaigns. Just ask the hundreds of conservatives who have used their LI training to win elected office.

At a one-day training near you, you’ll learn exactly what you must do from announcement to Election Day. You’ll learn:

•How to write a campaign plan that will guide you from your announcement to Election Day.
•How to raise money for your campaign, including through personal solicitation.
•How to make create a compelling message.
•How to calculate vote goals and run an effective volunteer operation.

These workshops aren’t full of generic best practices or broad, vague ideas. Instead, they’re the practical, tactical lessons you must learn to run a winning campaign. If you’re serious about running for office – or working or volunteering for a campaign – then you owe it to yourself to sign up right now.

Find the campaign workshop nearest to you and sign up for just $25 right now.

In one day at an LI campaign workshop, you get the very best advice from campaign experts who have spent decades in the campaign world … dedicating thousands of hours to working or volunteering for conservative causes and candidates … and they’re willing to share with you what it takes to win. Put simply: you get the advantage of years of direct, personal, hard-won campaign experience in just one day.

Sign up for your campaign workshop right now

I’m not sure when we’ll do a campaign workshop tour like this again, so if you’re serious about helping conservatives get elected, you owe it to yourself to sign up right now.

I look forward to seeing you this summer.
