A video from Paul LeVota’s campaign:

Hi, I’m Paul LeVota, candidate for Missouri state senate.

To kickoff this race we are launching paullevota dot com, the official website of this campaign.

I want to be your senator in order to stand up for common sense accountability in government. Over the past decade I have championed the cause of public education, introduced government accountability measures, and increased constituent outreach. Now, I want to serve you as your state senator.

I need you to be involved with this race. This website is only one way that I plan on keeping you informed and involved.

Running for state senate is a large undertaking. It will take a lot of time, energy and money to be successful. But I want you to know that I’m working very hard to win and I’m asking for your early support.

So, check out the website, sign up for a newsletter, and donate to our effort. But, most of all, I need your feedback. I want your participation in order to be successful.

Thank you again for checking out paullevota dot com. Check back often, we’ll have a lot of updates. I appreciate your friendship and support. Stay in touch.

A state senate campaign is a tough and complicated enterprise. You can’t decide to run on the last day of filing in 2012 and expect to be successful in a primary or the general election.

You’ve got to lay the groundwork well in advance. Paul LeVota appears to be doing just that.
