Well, for once I get to break news instead of link to it. Mathew Gross, burning the midnight oil in Burlington, just got off the phone with Kate who is on the road with Governor Dean. Blogger’s down, so Kate couldn’t post this herself. She asked if there’s a way to get the word out. Mathew IM’d me, and here you go…
Get this: three thousand, two hundred people rallied for Governor Dean tonight – in President Bush’s home state. This was a low-dollar fundraiser for Governor Dean alone. And it was all organized by local volunteers. The campaign was expecting around three hundred – and instead, more than three thousand people showed up at Plaza Saltillo in Austin. Reports have it that every local TV network was there, and Governor Dean stayed to do a number of interviews.
Let’s be real clear: 3200 people. In President Bush’s home state capital. Six months before the primaries.
Video will be coming to HowardDean.tv soon. Stay tuned.
