NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Ever thought of running for political office, being a campaign manager or just volunteering?
A new course at The New School called “Campaign Management Boot Camp,” is designed to shine a light on all things political.
The condensed four-session course being taught by Professor Jeffrey Smith is meant to offer a complete picture of what it’s like to run a campaign, launch a campaign or cover a campaign in the news media.
Smith said step one is deciding if you’re fully invested in running for office.
“There’s a lot of things that some people find distasteful and you have to make sure that you’re committed to it because if you go into it in a half-hearted way, you’re probably going to lose,” Smith told WCBS 880’s Steve Scott.
