A personal reflection by Hollis Wein, JAC Communications/Research Director
It was 1988. I had just arrived back home in Washington, D.C. after my first presidential campaign, the losing campaign of Michael Dukakis. My colleagues and I poured our heart and soul into that campaign. We travelled the country, slept on floors, and knocked on doors.
It was a crushing defeat, but we were energized by the opportunity to effect change, to see America up close and personal, and to play a part in our great democratic process.
We end 2020 with a renewed sense of hope that our country will finally be able to reset its moral compass after four bruising years of Donald Trump. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will make good government matter again.
The glow from the Hanukkah menorah will be even brighter this year as we are forced to stay home and light our own individual menorahs.
Tomorrow we face another holiday separated from our families and friends. But we must do what we can to find joy and thankfullness.
We are not done with the 2020 election. We defeated Donald Trump. But now we must defeat Georgia GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue on January 5.
