It’s two days from Election Day, and over the next two days I’ll be commenting on some of the local elections in Southeastern Wisconsin.
The closing days of a campaign are always the most nerve-wracking. Everyone scrambles to find one more thing they can do:
If I can make one more suggestion to candidates and staff, take time out in the next two days to hug your spouse or significant other and thank them for putting up with the campaign. It’s likely they didn’t have much of a role in the campaign, but they had an important role in allowing you to campaign. And often that’s the most important job of all.
And to all of the campaign staff out there, it’s okay if you feel nauseous on Election Day. You won’t be alone.
