Ben Katz is a political internet pioneer and Chief Architect ISPolitical and concerned about getting beyond the hyper-partisanship when dealing with questions about how to make sure elections are safe and secure.

We also talk about:

  • Need to return to expertise in political campaigns. Ben says the traditional gatekeepers are gone replaced by eager amateurs and brute anger.
  • The impact of nationalization of campaigns on partisanship and for raising money from voters and a national audience. 
  • The third wave of fundraising where the deluge of emails asking for money from candidates all around the country are being tuned out. Ben points out the trend to a return to individual asks with customized follow-up enhanced by technology.
