Ah yes, the second point – the pitch. The first point is that every politician has to know why they are running. The latter can be simple (“somebody asked me to, and I said ‘why not?'”) involved (i.e., a whole series of either interlocked or random issues that finally, in toto, reached a tipping point), or personal (yes, let’s throw in something a tad cynical: “this would burnish my resume!”, or “I worked hard for this title!“).
Back to the second point, the pitch – now that I’m running, here is why I am better than that other person; this is Pam’s answer’s to that question:
- Q1 – Why are you running?
- Q2 – Why should the ordinary Republican care who their RNC Committeewoman is?
- Q3 – Is defending the NH GOP platform part of the role of the Committeewoman’s role?
