Today we are joined by Obama alum and author, Chris Liddell-Westefeld. After joining the campaign in 2007, Chris spent 5 years on the Obama White House staff. In 2014, Chris began documenting the story of the 1st Obama campaign through oral history interviews. That work culminated in his great new book, “They Said This Day Would Never Come – Chasing the Dream on Obama’s Improbable Campaign.” We hear about how Obama’s campaign was organized, the important role that volunteers played, and how we can apply those lessons now.
