I Am Curious (Blue)
It’s a bit of an apples/oranges comparison, although both events involved precinct walks. Same day, 9/11, 2 events by opposing parties only about 6 miles apart in the Pasadena, CA area. OFA (Organizing for America, Obama’s online campaign organization) sent out tens of thousands of emails to the LA metro area vs our own email list of a few thousand in CD 29 – both events promoted over about the same period.
We were curious, so we sent someone by.

This is not a reason to get complacent and assume we have it won… but it is the kind of encouragement that we like to share with each other.
