1. Let me just make this point.

Mark mentioned that Bernie is going to need to expand/maintain boots on the ground in Iowa and New Hampshire. I'm not sure what he means by that. I'm sure many people are working their tails off to contact voters in both states.

However, let me remind you that he had boots on the ground before he made the announcement he was running.

And you may ask, how were there boots on the ground before he announced?

Hint: Another candidate we were hoping would run. If you guessed Senator Warren, you are correct. The people from "Run Warren Run" were already in Iowa and NH. All those people had to do was simply shift gears. I think Bernie was very lucky to have this infrastructure in place before the announcement.

That is what you call one hell of a head start.
