    Political and public affairs analyst Ron Faucheux gives advice for people who have never run for office before including how to figure out which office you want to run for.

    Speaker: How do I know which office I want to run for?

    Ron Faucheux: Well, different people have different skills and qualifications and abilities. Some people are better legislators than they are administrators. Some people want to run for Judicial Offices for example, because they have an interest in the law, so they want to run for District Attorney or Judgeship. Some people would rather be a Governor or Mayor then a US Senator or Member of the US House or State Legislature, because they believe that they can use their administrative skills and their leadership skills to accomplish that. It really depends on what your interest are, what you want to accomplish and a realistic assessment of what your talents and skills are.
