Auto Transcript:

1. What were the main challenges you encountered during the campaign?

I think there are a few difficult things with the campaign and being brand new to any campaign you obviously learn as you go. So two things that were tough were in my specific area there's a large geographic area so it's not condensed in an urban setting, so allocating time to get out to door knock was an important aspect. Also from a volunteer perspective, it's important and very detrimental to have volunteers or friends, family basically anyone that can be out to help you door knock, deliver print material, you know even put up lawn signs just any help is is greatly appreciated, obviously, and I was lucky enough to have some great friends and family members who believed in me and wanted me to succeed, so they helped me out as best they can and as I mentioned I'm greatly appreciated for that.
