- I have been canvassing with a friend, Rev. Pierre L. Williams, a United Methodist minister in Baltimore. We got a vivid feel for just how deeply Obama’s message is resonating here going door-to-door in a working class neighborhood yesterday.
In early 2008, Tim Wheeler, his wife Joyce Wheeler and another Communist Party USAcouple, Jim Baldridge and Margaret Baldridge, were all active members of Obama’s Baltimore operation – organizing, canvassing, phone banking and general campaign work.
- The highest profile election victory here Nov. 2 was the reelection of Sen. Patty Murray…I was asked to coordinate street-corner “waves” for Murray here in my hometown…Washington State voters helped put up a firewall against the ultra-right in reelecting Murray, blocking a GOP majority takeover of the Senate. Victory was won when the coalition of unions and other progressive organizations succeeded in getting out the vote.
