Obama General Election
Campaign Organization, Georgia revised
April 14, 2009disclaimer
In the first part of September
the campaign pulled significant
resources out of Georgia, but that was not the end of the campaign in
"The Obama campaign was a huge boost here; having more field staff
organizing and registering voters was a definite plus. Of course,
when OfA pulled staff out of Georgia, that was problematic, but what I
believe a lot of people miss is that when that happened, we had
literally thousands of trained volunteers to make up the staff
difference without missing a beat. In the end, this was the
largest, most complex, and most effective field effort ever seen in
Georgia... When you compare the Obama/McCain spread versus the
numbers from four years ago, you can see how far we've come."
