Listening

Rebecca launched this campaign by listening

2018 is an election like no other, and if you think your candidate will win by doing what candidates have done in the past, chances are very good that you are sadly mistaken. Rebecca realized this early on, so instead of launching her Governor campaign by going around the state and doing a lot of talking, Rebecca went around the state and listened.

She conducted over three dozen listening sessions while people were still shell-shocked from the last election, and she learned some critical things. She learned who didn't vote and why. She learned where these people live and how to reach them. And she learned that without them, we'll lose in 2018.

Listening. It's what all successful leadership is based on, and as your Governor, that will always be Rebecca's guide.
