"Can I count on your vote?"
"Yes, if no one knocks on the door who's more attractive" - said by a 77 year old man wearing an open bathrobe and no pants...
People ask me what the hardest part of running for office. I’ll be honest, it’s not the long hours. It’s not the fundraising,
It’s dealing with shit like this every single day and still finding the courage to go knock another door. Usually, I force myself to get right back on the horse and keep going. But today, for some reason, I literally just can’t.
All I want to do is just sit in this stairwell and give up.
Of course, if I do that, nothing will change. People won’t take women or young people seriously and it’ll be the same old story. As AOC said: “For 1 of us to make it through, 100 of us have to try.”
