Kennedy Campaign’s Precinct Committeeperson Strategy Successful
Kennedy “extremely optimistic” about 2011 slating convention
Indianapolis -- Late this evening, after tallying election results and checking in with supporters all over Marion County, Kennedy for Indianapolis announced it had a great day in reaching out and adding to its grassroots team.
“We targeted and attained commitments from hundreds of committeepersons who were elected today, and expanded our commitments from ward chairs,” said Kip Tew, former Indiana Chairman of Obama for America.
“We are very pleased with Melina’s efforts in reaching out to neighborhoods all across Indianapolis, her efforts are leading to folks enthusiastically signing up to help. With the slating convention about 8 months away, we are well positioned to welcome our opponents participation,” Tew added.
After spending the day helping candidates on the ballot in 2010, and then returning to her war room to be briefed by her campaign team, Kennedy said she was “extremely encouraged” that her grassroots support is growing.
“Over the coming weeks, we will continue to go neighborhood to neighborhood building this campaign from the bottom up. We also intend to use our forces to help Democratic candidates this November,” Kennedy said.
