Campaign staff are the machinery of American democracy. As November 3 approaches, field organizers, fundraisers, policy experts, data analysist, speechwriters, and volunteers are joining campaigns, and their efforts to capture the nation’s political mood, and its votes, could shape their own fortunes as profoundly as America’s. What is it like to work at the heart of a presidential campaign, and how is the nature of political campaigning evolving? A panel of seasoned staffers, who worked on the campaigns of Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, share their experiences of life on the campaign trail.
