They spent about $2 billion dollars campaigning for the presidential election this year. That’s insane. What if I got elected without accepting one donation? Without filling out any of the paper work? Just spreading the word with the internet and grassroots tactics.
With Tim Scott’s departure for the Senate that means there will be a special election to fill that seat this spring. Special elections tend to have a much weaker turnout than the standard election day. Arnold Shwarzenegger took over as Governor of California during a special election. I bet a few thousand votes from the First Congressional District of S.C. could land me in the U.S. Congress.
Just crazy enough to work? Maybe we should try it out.
