Obama’s Integrated Ground Game in Virginia

August 4th, 2008

Don’t miss today’s front-page Washington Post article profiling Virginia as a battleground state (now with working link — thanks, Dad). The discussion of demographics and voting patterns is political-junkielicious in itself, but the article also talks in some detail about Obama’s local organizing tactics. 30-odd offices statewide? Check. Massive voter registration campaign? Check. Local events organized via MyBarackObama? Check. Obama “fellows” working their butts off? Check. Database-driven turnout operations? Check. Database-driven microtargeting to find potentially wavering Republicans? Check. A good look at how a modern political machine works? Check, and quite likely mate.
