Dem Cliff Notes (Cuz it's Friday)

Democratic releases somehow outnumbered releases from the Governor's office this Friday . . .

Something must be in the water.

  • The State Democratic Party announced a milestone to supporters today - contacting its 100,000th voter. "Talking directly with this many voters is nearly unprecedented so early in an election year," said State Field Director JR Starrett.
  • The state Dems also came out against a proposed state ballot initiative that would eliminate affirmative action programs for women and minorities. "If the initiative were to pass, the Missouri Democratic Party warns, women business-owners would have fewer opportunities for advancement, and fewer African American students would be able to obtain a college education," reads the release.
  • Volunteers for Barack Obama's campaign could be knocking on your door Saturday. Supporters will be canvassing 10 Missouri cities, including Springfield beginning at 10 a.m. If you are interested in participating, you can show up at Dem HQ at 1764 South Fremont Ave at 10 a.m.
  • Again, both John Edwards and Hillary Clinton will make visits to Missouri Saturday -- both in the St. Louis area. Edwards has a rally at 9:15 a.m. and Hillary and Bill Clinton hold a town hall meeting in Florissant at 8 p.m.
