Democrats Offer Local Assistance to Candidates
The Washington Post reports on efforts by Democrats to win local elections, which includes a couple of names from the Kerry campaign, Mary Beth Cahill and Michael Whouley:
Three of the Democratic Party’s top field organizers have formed a group to provide their party’s 2008 presidential nominee with road maps to victory in the dozen or so battleground states.
The effort is known as the Atlas Project and is being organized by political operatives Steve Rosenthal, Michael Whouley and Mary Beth Cahill. The group will analyze election data, interview local Democrats, and mount a polling and targeting effort to devise a comprehensive strategy to win votes in these states.
