Dean speaks strategy

Earlier today, friend and top blogger Sean Quinn of 538 got to interview Howard Dean, chair of the Democrat party and originator the 50 state strategy. 

“We asked him to explain how the 50-state strategy had benefited Barack Obama and Democratic candidates during this 2008 cycle. He was ready with the answer – when you go into places like Utah and South Carolina and Alaska, you give yourselves the opportunity not only to develop the Democratic voter file there, you lay the groundwork for having the infrastructure to support legitimate candidates like Mark Begich, a slight favorite to topple the indicted Ted Stevens.”

Read the full interview,including the importance of the ground game, here.
