    Political and public affairs analyst Ron Faucheux gives advice for people who have never run for office before, including what attacks you should expect during a campaign.

    Host: What kind of attack should I expect?

    Ron Faucheux: Well, when you are political candidate you have to expect to be attacked from your opponents from every corner and you have to be ready for attacks that are unfair. You have to be ready for distortions, exaggerations, things that just aren't true because often time those things unfortunately happen in political campaigns and the best way to deal with that is to be candid, is to be armed with the facts and to tell the truth yourself and ultimately that credibility I think is very important in dealing with that, but you have to be ready for any and everything.
