Governor Howard Dean addresses DemocracyFest on Saturday night
The program here has been densely packed! Sitting next to me here at the breakfast is Steve Ybarra of Latinos for America, who along with Arshad Hasan of DFA, has been running a 3-day campaign training track called San Diego precinct day, culminating in a canvass & visibility in San Diego this morning. Gathered here at SDSU, we're just a few miles from California's 50th congressional district, site of the recent Busby/Bilbray special election. A lot of people here were involved in that election and there was much praise for the DNC's recent announcement calling for a hand count of all the votes, announced in person by Brad Friedman of the Brad Blog.
This is a DemFest open thread.
San Diego's Progressive Talk Radio broadcasts live from DemocracyFest
I've attended sessions on voting integrity, clean money campaigns, recruiting volunteers... and missed a lot more. I've seen talks by Paul Hackett, Maxine Waters, Howard Dean, Al Franken, and met even more DFA state & local groups and learned about their candidates. How about you? Are you here at DemocracyFest, and still finding time to get online and check the blogs? Tell us about the panels you've attended!
