Create the biography for your candidate, including name, experience, history and characteristics (include political party) for your candidate. (Unit 2 Written Lectures, Slide 22)
  • Campaign Message: Select one of the campaign messages in the notes and talk about how it will be used in your campaign- it should be a good fit for the candidate you describe. (Unit 2 Written Lectures, Slide 23)
  • Campaign Strategy: Explain what types of voters are likely to vote for you (based on candidate qualities and campaign message). (Unit 2, Written Lectures, Slide 24)
