Try Try Again: Persistence in Politics
A candidate may be elected for many reasons; by the values they hold, by the platform they stand for, by the party they represent or finally by sheer persistence to get elected.
Last night Toronto Councillor Raymond Cho finally accomplished his desire to be elected to a higher level of government. Cho won the by-election for MPP of Scarborough-Rouge River and will vacate his city council seat. Previous attempts by Cho to win either provincial or federal elections illuminates how persistence may pay off in politics.
