Get local: go Philly
August 01, 2005
Chris Bowers over at MyDD is live-blogging in Philly today, and it would seem that the folks there are really getting the hang of local grassroots politics, as he writes: "I am pleased to announce that every seat in the Philadelphia region already has at least one serious Democratic challenger, or is a Democratic held seat. Even better, in just two days, we are going to have every serious Democratic challenger to a Republican held seat in the area speak at a massive, five-county Democracy for America Meetup (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia)." Republicans, of course, have been onto this sort of organizing for years via evangelical churches, and are hopped up even more so now on the mega-churches. Let's hope the mega-MeetUp is a beacon of light for progressives everywhere.
