THE NETROOTS….In the LA Times today, political guru Ron Brownstein highlights a project from Chris Bowers at MyDD:
In an unusual grass-roots uprising, liberal Internet activists are pressing dozens of Democratic House members without serious challenges in November’s election to transfer nearly one-third of their campaign cash to the party’s challengers against potentially vulnerable Republican incumbents.
I thought it was interesting that Brownstein is now taking the time to follow blogs closely and report on what they’re up to, and via Tapped, I see that the New York Times wrote about it as well. The times, they are a changin.
But not changing too much. Brownstein’s conclusion so far? Democrats are being “cordial but resistant.” In other words, they’re holding onto their cash.
