Is there a way to bulk shorten? If I were to upload a text or csv file with a bunch of URLs to be shortened some place?

@heyjude  Nope, you're welcome to skip the words 'elect' or 'for.' In fact, many times it can be a really good idea.

One of the reasons why social media is a challenging component to a campaign is that the candidate, staffer, or volunteer knows social media when they don't. I've found it to be like playing chess. I can learn how to play chess in an afternoon but it takes a lifetime to master it. Of course, these resources are geared towards getting people started and because of the time that it takes to build a following and truly get good at social media, it's best to start sooner rather than later!

@CrazyComposer I'm saying that candidates should get the lay of the political land, take stock of themselves, and then put their best foot forward. If the political environment isn't friendly to incumbents, then an incumbent candidate should position him or herself in a way that demonstrates their independent streak or that they aren't an insider.

I look at it this way. If you were applying for a job, which is essentially what a candidate is doing over and over again, would you emphasize your work history that shows that you are a good fit for the position or would you concentrate on your work history that's either irrelevant (I think your view, for example, was that voting against someone because they are an incumbent is pathetic) or your work history that didn't cast you in the best possible light? I think you would focus on why your the best candidate for the job and leave the rest out.

I'm suggesting that candidates for elected office do the same.
