Have you heard the famous proverb: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again?”
For Lee Cohen, trying again proved very successful.
In 2012, he ran for student body president at Indiana University South Bend and lost by just 57 votes. This year, running against two other candidates, Lee received 55.9 percent of the vote, while the second place person received 35.9 percent and the last received 8.2 percent. In other words, Lee overwhelmingly won 1.5 times more votes than the second highest candidate and 6.5 times more votes than the third.
So, what changed?
