Seems weird than in eight years on DU I've never seen this mentioned

http://www.wellstone.org/resources/winning-your-election-wellstone-way

Winning Your Election the Wellstone Way provides a refreshing look at how to run an election in a grassroots people-powered way—just as the great Senator Paul Wellstone did—and win.

Representative Tim Walz (MN-01)


As a teacher, coach, and neighborhood activist, I didn’t spend my career plan-ning to run for office—but I knew that I had the experience to lead my community in the Arizona Senate. Camp Wellstone gave me valuable skills that helped me run an organized, energizing campaign. Winning Your Election the Wellstone Way makes those skills available to progressive candidates and campaign managers throughout the country.

State Senator Paula Aboud, Tucson, Arizona


Once I made the decision to run for office, I felt like I had pointed my skis down a steep mountain: it was thrilling and challenging, and everything went very fast. Wellstone Action’s expertise and training gave me and my campaign the critical skills and confidence we needed to win. Winning Your Election the Wellstone Way is a must for emerging leaders who have decided to step up for their community and run for office.

I know a guy running for Wisconsin assembly that is using this resource as a blueprint for his campaign, and he’s on track to upset a Republican in district that has not elected anything but Republicans in decades.

Anyone else familiar with this?

1. Thousands of people have been to "Camp Wellstone"

Its good training for working on elections or running for office.

2. There were lots more mentions of it before you got here, when it was first starting up, as evidenced

by a quick search.

4. It has been mentioned here, although not often.

 

When I was running for office in 2004 my husband attended a Camp Wellstone. It was incredibly helpful. Somehow it's not as well known as it needs to be.
