Here’s a video that tells Dave Treen’s story. I don’t know why it is cut off at the end. Here’s the important thing for conservatives to remember: Building what we have now was NOT easy. We too often forget the struggles we endured, and therefore don’t learn the lessons from them. Dave Treen ran and lost. He ran and lost again. He ran and lost again. He ran and lost AGAIN. All that, before he ever won his first race. This persistence is what it took to build a party and a movement. Our commitment should be no less.
