This is diary rescue from several days ago, but I deliberately saved this for Sunday, because the article is long and detailed – 100% worth the time. I’m still dazzled by the two strategists and their Colorado donor network that backed a constellation of think tanks, candidate-training outfits and blogs, discussed in the piece. Nothing like that here in NJ. And as a 2-time Camp Wellstone grad, I have great respect for Jeff Blodgett and others in Paul Wellstone’s legacy discussed here. – Rosi
Great article. Let’s Discuss.
Fantastic article though it misses the Dean surge of 2004 and the hard slog of party building in red suburbs during the dark days by people like current MN DFL Vice Chair Marge Hoffa, but a great read if you are interested in understanding how to build a progressive policy network aligned with your states values.
