From the Barack Obama 2004 Campaign Weblog:
"At the request of the Democratic Party, we are re-directing our Chicago area volunteers who were planning on going to Wisconsin this weekend. We are asking them instead to help staff the John Kerry phonebank in Buffalo Grove and canvass with the Melissa Bean campaign in the 10th Congressional District.
The Kerry phonebank is the largest in the nation(!) with 400 phone lines for volunteers to help make calls to swing states in the Midwest."
-- I guess I can take some comfort in that they are not going to be going to Wisconsin. However the fact that a guy running for senate for a open seat that was held by a Republican is so comfortable in his race that he can send volunteers to other states.
On one hand, good for him. On the other hand Grrrrr...
