Happy Independence Day!

This week, we're covering the New York Times Bestseller A Citizen's Guide to Beating Donald Trump by David Plouffe.

But rest assured -- this book can be used to help elect ANY candidate in ANY political party. 

Plouffe is an American political strategist best known as the campaign manager for Barack Obama's successful 2008 presidential campaign. He was an outside senior advisor to Obama since the president's first day in office and was then appointed as a Senior Advisor to the President (inside the White House) in 2011 following the resignation of David Axelrod, who went on to start Obama's reelection campaign. 

Plouffe wrote this book with the intention of sharing his experience working for and in campaigns for several decades, and his insights are usable to any volunteer or candidate, for any campaign, at any level, from local election up to, and including, President.

In this A Citizen’s Guide To Beating Donald Trump book review, we cover the following chapters:
