In 2012, each presidential candidate spent a whopping $1 billion! Learners investigate how people create campaigns and run for office. They watch a short video, the 39th of a 50-part US government and politics series, to analyze what goes into creating an effective campaign strategy and team. Discussion on raising money, reaching voters, and staying on topic rounds out the lesson.
