Near the end of September, I was given the incredible opportunity to work on President Obama's reelection campaign here in North Carolina.* It was a whirlwind and there were a few times where a breaking point loomed awfully close.
But there's no way I would trade the experience for anything. I got the chance to work with a pretty stellar group of people, do some event planning, make a lot of spreadsheets, and go canvassing, to name a few. No two days were the same but they were all pretty epic.
Although Obama didn't win the state of North Carolina, we couldn't have hoped for a better overall outcome. I was stoked when Obama won in 2008 but working on his campaign made it that much more exciting on November 6th.
