Philly-DA: "Philly Phenomenon" at it Again

Posted by Tim Tagaris

With one day to go before Philadelphians cast their primary ballots for District Attorney, the Philly bloggers are at it again in support of Seth Williams--this time asking a growing grassroots network to help GOTV. The regionalized effort, led by Daniel Urevick-Ackelsberg of Young Philly Politics, is providing a template for bloggers across the country on how to organize locally, online, and have an impact on "down ballot" races.

So far, they have raised money, recruited volunteers, tallied vote pledges, and earned a bunch of free media, including a piece in the Philadelphia Inquirer just last week. Today, they are asking people across the country to make phone calls, tonight, for Seth. You can find out more information on how to get involved HERE.

Thanks for following this, Tim. It is certainly something where people around the country (yes, you) can make a difference in TODAY.

This is a great race, and has been a joy to follow. What you guys are doing over there (around the block from me), has been truly inspirational, and something I am paying attention to for my own efforts over here on Chuck's race.

I think that I might be able to make it down to the city tomorrow--send me the details I need to know for the canvass and the late night party--or maybe I might be able to help out more online as opposed to off? Let me know.
