    Smile Do you have the drive and tenacity to run for public office

    Dear teachers,

    I am writing to ask the meaning of the following sentence.
    Do you have the drive and tenacity to run for public office.
    --Does the tenacity here mean the "licence or ability"?
    --What does "drive" here mean?

    Thanks

    Emily
