"The Leadership Institute made it possible for me to learn how to run a campaign, how to craft my message, how to speak effectively in public, and how to handle the media.
Above all, I learned how to win.
Today, I stand in a long line of conservative leaders who owe a debt of gratitude to Morton Blackwell and to the Leadership Institute.
“This is the best training I have ever gone to (political or professional) over all the years I have been involved. People need to understand what a big deal this is." -
