    New, paid professional people who weren't already here totaled 3. The permanent impact on party structures and capabilities was barely measurable.

    We are small, and aren't swingy and sexy like Ohio and Pennsylvania.... the Senate seat was written off, and the congressional seats between Allen and Michaud were safe at the time.

    •  Was this from the Dean DNC, or OFA? (0+ / 0-)

      First, Maine is ripe for sensible change, and any real (good) professional help is positive, if that help is accepted by the local power structure and integrated into it's configuration; so, there's that.

      If you mean that was all that the Dean DNC gave you, then I would have argued for more, if I had been there then.  But I do know elsewhere that the local impact was great in a lot of places (like Wyoming, Montana and Colorado) and that organizing has had impact on national politics to this day.

      I wish you a lot of luck. I think LePage's stink might end up dimming the R's in the state enough to give an opening for someone to take out Collins.

      Who do you think has the best chance vs. your senior Senator?

      Also, my sister has a place in Prout's Neck, so, I should finally take her up on her offer to visit soon.
