    said Elizabeth Warren's campaign was going nowhere too. We don't have quite the energy in this special election that we had in November, but we've still got a lot. Tonight I'm going to a meeting of core volunteers in my city. We have dozens of people coming, so many I need to bring folding chairs. There was nothing like this in 2010.

    Where the enthusiasm really seems to lacking is on the GOP side. They really rallied behind Brown, but there seems to be little or no Gomez presence. They bragged to the newspaper that they'd made "over 3,000" volunteer recruitment calls and had "dozens" of volunteers in each county. We have 14 counties. They might have a couple hundred volunteers statewide. We have that many in just my city. We made 5,000 volunteer recruitment calls in two days.

    More people are coming in to help every day now that it's late. That's why we've talked to a million voters in Massachusetts. In the typical non-Presidential election here, only 2.2 million votes are cast.
