Masterminds of the Dean campaign

June 18, 2003 10:42 AM

Dean's causing quite a stir with his $300K ad buy in Iowa - the first candidate to buy television. I think it just proves how brilliant Joe Trippi, his campaign manager, really is. The ads in Iowa are secondary to the stories running nationally about the audacity of running ads in Iowa this early. Yet more buzz for Dean.

On Monday, Dean will officially announce his candidacy with parties all over the country, even one in Orange County. Still more buzz.

I met Roger Lee this weekend. He is well known in progressive political circles for his work on fusing field organizing and direct mail. I was very impressed. He's now working on the Dean campaign.
