25. Here's What I Know
I wasn't in on the delegate selection process that Cally describes below (I was traveling on business for much of December), so I don't know how that worked. I do know that the slate that emerged was not all DFA folks, at least not in my district. There were several who were stalwart Kerry SoCal folks, including the leader for the entire org, who was elected not only as a delegate, but also to the executive committee. My understanding is that there were high-level discussions between the DFA folks in SoCal and the Kerry SoCal folks, which led to an understanding and alliance. I don't know how it worked in Northern California, where Cally is from.

Once the slates were selected (and this was done pretty democratically, there were open slots in most districts where other volunteers were solicited to run), that info was sent out to the respective mailing lists along with the times and locations of the caucuses.

On caucus day, there was a ton of lit being disseminated promoting the "New Grassroots Slate" and people were wearing stickers everywhere. Everyone who ran on the slate in our district won.

That's how it happened here, anyway.
