How to Talk About the Mueller Investigation

Republican candidates in deeply red states and districts who can win elections with only Republican votes can adopt Donald Trump’s perspective on the Mueller investigation. But Republican candidates who need both Republican and Independent votes to win can appeal to both groups with the following arguments:

• Nobody is above the law, not even the President.

• The Mueller investigation should follow the facts wherever they lead.

• Donald Trump should not shut down the Mueller investigation, because doing so would make him look like he is guilty of wrongdoing and has something to hide.

North Star Opinion Research is proud to be honored for its part in the Karen Handel for Congress campaign, recognized as the 2017 American Association of Political Consultants Campaign of the Year.

North Star provided the polling services on a team with general and media consulting from Rob Simms and Mike Shields of Convergence Media, mail consulting from Ron Butler of Creative Media, and campaign management from Micah Yousefi of Winning for Women. It was an honor to work alongside that team on behalf of a candidate who had long before established herself as a servant of the district and state, starting with her chairing the Fulton County Commission and continuing with her service as Secretary of State. We have had the honor of working with Congresswoman Handel throughout her career, starting with her first campaign in 2002.

Whit Ayres and Mike Shields accepted the award on behalf of the team from Art Hackney for the AAPC.
