You start in politics at the grass roots. At the very lowest levels, township commissioner, school board, etc., candidates who are already known and even trusted by 100-200 people in the local area have an enormous advantage.

People who are well-known and active at church, civic organization leaders, long-time scout leaders, long-time school group leaders... if you're one or two of those things you have that base.
