Blogging about Fundraising and Federal Politics… you’ve been warned.

Thanks for joining me here at my blog at

I hope to make this blog a space where I post relevant fundraising insights, tips and advice as well as share breaking news about political fundraising, federal finance reporting, campaign updates… and of course shameless plugs for my clients.  Also shameless plugs for people I just happen to like. In the interest of full disclosure, there may occasionally be an amazing BuzzFeed List, political rant, hilarious meme making fun of political leaders or a delicious pumpkin cheesecake recipe here as well.  You’ve been warned.

Many people acknowledge the importance of fundraising in today’s political landscape, and much attention has been paid to the growing power fundraising has over the political system, especially in the media. (Um, SuperPACPanic of 2012, anyone?)

I don’t pretend to offer the preeminent opinion on fundraising, as it is a constantly changing industry without a specific playbook — though it does have many, many rules. In this business you will find just as many different opinions on the “right” way to raise money as you will find bad toupees. (Read: a LOT. What is it with hair in #ThisTown?)

However there are some basic principles and some tricks that I have learned along the way.

I expect that at this juncture, the only people reading this blog are my mother (hey, ma!) and perhaps a few who stumbled onto it whilst searching for a reliable home builder (KB, right here, y’all…) – but I’d love to hear from you if you have ideas for future posts or questions.

Happy reading… and fundraising! Only 386 days until the 2014 election!
