Support from Onward Together

Hillary Clinton's PAC Onward Together lists Run for Something as a partner and has provided them with financial support.[2]


"We’ll connect people to training organizations. Places like Wellstone, EMILY’s List, Latino Victory Project, National Democratic Training Committee, She Should Run, Emerge, Higher Heights, and more are already off to the races with incredible conferences and curriculum. We’ll help feed people into these programs."

Strategic Plan

""In our efforts to build a Democratic bench for the future, Run for Something’s immediate goal is to get as many people to run as possible."


Recruit new candidates


Recruit 5 strong candidates for down-ballot races in 2017, focusing in Virginia and possibly North Carolina.


Ask people to run — and once they say yes, get them into trainings that other organizations are already hosting.[3]
