16. Start Now

Start now by raising funds and selecting candidates early. Also start preparing virtual ground offices (it might be too expensive to open offices now). Know the electorate - have a small cadre of ground staff that do nothing but keep in touch with the people of the constituency.

I think the lesson from 2010 is that like the enemy, Democrats have to treat elections as a process of preparation years in advance. The enemy has put resources into defeating us. We need to reciprocate by learning from them and adapting our ground game to compensate.
