Ready for Battle With 'Econ War Room'
politico.com — A Democratic activist group is expected to announce the opening of an “economic war room” Wednesday.
The Campaign for America’s Future is planning to send daily dispatches to candidates, bloggers, talk show hosts and others to bulk up its party’s economic messages.
In addition to daily message alerts, the group also is considering parachuting additional resources into races where economic issues are most salient.
For instance, the group could dispatch a blogger, train local bloggers and organize events around the economy that could draw local publicity. They have no plans now for television advertising.
“The change in the economy has been abrupt, serious, and it’s a created a different kind of recession,” said Robert Borosage, co-director of Campaign for America’s Future.
