Many on the lefty blogosphere have trumpeted the “netroots” – the use of blogs and web-based activism to push our side over the Repukes. Rodriguez-Cuellar provides a little reality check.
In point of fact, raising money from the netroots is important but very limited. Money makes the world go ’round, but on-the-ground activism gets out the vote.
- Did Rodriguez change his operation from 2004 to improve his ground game?
- Did the changes he made do any good? He appears to have lost by the same amount
- Why was Morales in the race?
We, the lefty blog subscribers, are getting hit every day for contributions, by email, telephone and letter. Are we getting our money’s worth?
