14. It was the state coordinated campaign guy saying that.
When I called our county office today, the internish kind of guy (he's young and working for our state senator, so he might not be an intern, but anyway) told me flat-out that they're not working for the top of the ticket. He also said that I'm the first precinct captain to contact them (for our whole county?!) and was wondering if I would take over the precincts near me as well (um, mine is big enough to deal with, so why aren't they calling all the precinct delegates they worked so hard to get to run for the office?!). He then asked me if I'd work for the local campaigns, too, if just by handing out flyers for local candidates.

I'm not too happy with our state senator and a couple of his local candidates right now, so he also asked me if I would be working for or against him. I told him that campaigning is not about whom I individually vote for or don't vote for--it's about getting out the Dem vote. I will keep my issues private, of course, but he was worried. Interesting.

He agreed that I should phone bank the Dems in the precinct, if just to get more volunteers for door knocking. If they say they're not interested and not for Granholm, then I can work on them for that. *sigh* This is going to be harder than I had thought.
