Campaign and Candidate Readiness:
Our founder Chris Jahnke has 20 years of experience helping vice-presidential, gubernatorial, and U.S. Senate candidates prepare for nationally televised live debates, Meet the Press interviews, and citizen forums. She prepped Joe Lieberman to go head to head with Vice President Dick Cheney and Al Franken for his first ever Senate debate. She helped ensure victories for Governor Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and former Governors Bev Perdue (D-NC), Jennifer Granholm (D-MI), and Christine Gregoire (D-WA).Chris can help your campaign streamline its debate prep operation.
