"Run and sound local, like you want to be their governor." A lot of candidates make the huge mistake of trying to run in 27 states. "Run three governor's races, and you'll have a really good shot. Focus on three. Do well in three. And the others will come.”

But like in everything else, California was as good a place as any to start something.”
Sonali Dev, Incense and Sensibility

Bob Woodward
