Losing His First Congressional Runoff Before Learning How to Win: Will Hurd – Just the Mistake


Check out all episodes on the My Favorite Mistake main page.

This is “just the mistake” — a new experiment, the second time.

Today we’ll hear the “favorite mistake” story shared, in episode #2, by then-U.S. Representative Will Hurd (R-TX). Will explains how he lost his first Congressional primary runoff election and how he took ownership of the decision. He learned… and he won the primary in his next attempt, serving three terms in the House.

Will's story is featured in my upcoming book, The Mistakes that Make Us – learn more and be notified about updates at mistakesbook.com.
