    My grandfather recently decided to run for the U.S. Senate but has had no previous experience in government. He has grown a few businesses from 0 to multi million dollar companies so he thinks he can do this (he realizes he is crazy but figures, "Fuck it, what do I have to lose?"). And I was just wondering if anybody has any advice/pointers as to what might help.

    I figure with the amount of intelligent people here, MAYBE somebody has at least been a state senator or something.

    How strong is his twitter game? Is he generally disrespectful to women and minorities? Both of those would help imo.

    Rant had an Slaw judge. Had. Seems some of his posts were not ment for printing in a hometown newspaper. An investigation cost him his bench and I think freedom. Bribes were still illegal

    I went to law school with a dude that is in the Georgia house now. Seems to me you need to start a Facebook page and post a lot about God and values and stuff, and then go and speak at a lot of homely local restaurants with "real Americans."

    are you white? because i would probably start with examining the thinking that leads to "i'm that type of nigga" sitting under your username.

    i don't really care but the combo of that and "how do i get grandpa into the senate?" was funny to me.

    My FIL sound similar to your grandfather (built multiple companies from 0 to multi-million) and he decided to run for city council a few years ago. He won but that's obviously a far cry from US Senate.

    Advice/pointers? Tell him to step up his wardrobe game. Go to express and have an chick employee help you chose 3-4 jeans (about 60.00 each and make sure they fit well). Then match 3-4 long sleeve dress shirts, make sure you buy at least one long sleeve that stands out like Red (about 55.00 per dress shirt). Next select 2 belts with nice buckles ask the employee to help you with it (20.00 per belt).Then buy 2 dress shoes black and brown (about 70-90 each). Ask her for help picking out 4-5 t-shirts buy them at any other store you want, just make sure there stylish.

    Next is accessories. No its Not gay to add stylish accessories to your wardrobe. Purchase one of those leather fossil watches black or brown (75.00 each). Add a few clean bracelets (15-40.00). Purchase 2-3 necklaces with unique pendants (doesn't have to gold/silver, 20-50.00 each
    Don't know if you have hair or not but go to a salon and have a female advice you on what haircut style will fit you best.

    Then go to your local gym and sign up. Work out 3-5 times a week if possible. The last thing you gotta buy is that family packj of trojan condoms from costco cause you're going to be banging chicks left and right.

    Good luck

    Good for him. I've gone to a few city council meetings where I live because I guess I'm a sadist or something. Listening to people air grievances over zoning and whatnot was bad enough without having to pretend to care.

    Wow, first time run for US Senate. I feel like running for a state rep seat is ambitious. lol If I had to give cliffnotes on what I've learned so far. Run on issues that matter to you. Surround yourself with a smart group of people. If you are shy, get over that real quick. Even like minded people may not agree to vote for you, don't take negative interactions personally. Be prepared to put in a lot of work. Get comfortable with asking, because you will "make asks" for everything from votes to money on a daily basis...

    If Kansas isnt winning by a landslide then NC is pretty fucked up then.

    We have had years of Trump level bullshit thanks to Koch Brothers having Governor Brownback in their pocket.

    Discrimination against immigrants, gays and tax plan they damn near bankrupted the state.

    I think Kansas wins in a landslide. Easily. The bathroom bill and gerrymandering is bad, but the tax plan bankrupting the state and almost closing down schools takes the cake. Koch Brother Playground will win any contest for shitty state leadership.
