  • Road to the White House: The Campaign Process
  • I've decided that I am going to run for President of the United States. I certainly am qualified being that I'm 35 years old, a natural born citizen, and I have been a resident for 14 years in the United States. I am also a man of great character with qualities citizens would want in a leader such as commitment, charisma, open-mindedness, team player, great communicator, and honesty. I will announce my plan to run for office. Let the speeches, debates, and hand shaking begin!
  • Competing against other people from my party, I'll first need to get through the nomination campaign and try to win my Republican party's endorsement as a candidate for office. This will require money and drive as I work to gain crucial support from representatives who pledge to support my nomination at the national convention. During this "invisible primary" I must create a positive image amongst the media, the political elite, and potential voters, in general.
  • Then, from January through June of the election year, caucuses and primary elections will take place in each of the individual states. In a caucus, delegates are chosen to go to the national convention, and presidential candidate preferences are determined by voters in a long, open meeting. In a primary election,  state's voters go to the polls to express their preference for a party's nominee for president. Most delegates to the national convention are chosen this way, too.
  •  Next, at the next national convention, many delegates gather to rally support for each party's platform.  A candidate for president is nominated and accepted as long as a majority, over 50 percent vote from the state's delegates, is made. Thereafter, a nominee for vice president will be chosen and an acceptance speech made. The grand finale of the convention is when the presidential candidate's acceptance speech is made, and a new order of business will soon follow, the general election.
