She had sought out the advice of an older male friend about waging a campaign to unseat an incumbent in her California district. “He put his hand on my knee and said, ‘Sweetie, just wait 20 years [and] maybe you can run,'” she recalled in an interview Monday.
Schrode “was completely taken aback.” And she decided to go for it.
