    do you need an engraved invitation to get involved?  If it's important to you speak up, ask questions, volunteer, etc.

      That NorthCountry isn't complaining about the lack of an invitation to get further involved personally, but about the fact that Woolf (the Democrat) isn't running his campaign very well — something reinforced by a lot of media articles noting how invisible he's been (which he actually admitted was true!).

      Most people need to be encouraged to take civic action, and a good campaign finds ways to encourage them.

      •  Yes, that is exactly the point (0+ / 0-)

        I was trying to make. Frankly, very few North Country voters are the kind of engaged voters that post on places like DK and spontaneously volunteer. A well-run campaign will train canvassers to make the ask.

        It doesn't help that Aaron Woolf characterizes himself as more of a 'press release kind of guy' than a retail politician. He is wasting his supporters time and money if his campaign strategy consists mainly of press releases. Someone from the DCCC better set him straight, and light a fire under his ass, if he wants to be considered more than a vanity candidate in NY-21. I like what the guy stands for, a lot, but this is the reality of the situation.
