269+1: Behind the Scenes of A Presidential Campaign

Running a Presidential Campaign in a Freak Show World. Guest Matt Rhoades, Campaign Manager Romney for President 2012. Managing a presidential campaign is like running a billion dollar startup whose every move is scrutinized by the media and criticized by a plethora of new media Monday morning quarterbacks. It’s 24/7 madness where every day is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re going to get. How do you structure a nationwide organization that can function at peak performance and grows exponentially every month? How do you stay focused on the goal – winning delegates for the nomination and 270 electoral votes in the fall -- and not get sidetracked by countless distractions? How do you manage effectively in a crisis environment for months on end? Matt Rhoades ran the Romney for President campaign in 2012, dealt with these issues every day, and will share his thoughts on that experience. Room: FDR
