Iowa: "It's a level of organization like we've never seen before."

Elizabeth's campaign has put together a ground game that is second to none. Early on in this campaign you would have heard Senator Warren say she has visited every State (and Puerto Rico). She has (not exactly coincidentally) established operations in all 50 states as well. The early bird has caught up with some top notch talent. Like Obama in 2007, the plan is to achieve GOTV breakthroughs that can be carried all the way to the GE.

Here is a report from Iowa

Biden and Harris make a big play for Iowa, but Warren is months ahead

(snip) It is Warren’s organization (however) that draws the most respect. In conversations with more than a dozen veteran Iowa activists and local party leaders, the Massachusetts senator’s campaign is frequently mentioned as having established the deepest presence in the state, in part because it began organizing long before most other campaigns.

“Iowa caucuses, in particular, are a relationship-building operation. An important part of the strategy is getting out to build these relationships,” said Emily Parcell, an Iowa-based senior adviser to Warren.

Parcell said Warren’s team used its head start to cultivate deeper loyalties, holding book clubs, coffees, gardening and running events tied to Warren’s candidacy. By the time caucus night comes, she said, “We want them to be proud of standing in that candidate’s corner. And that doesn’t happen overnight.”

Warren is so disciplined that when Polk County Democratic officials made a recent call to all 2020 campaigns for help in filling 40 stubbornly empty caucus-night volunteer slots, Warren’s campaign stepped up and filled more than half of them in 48 hours.

“They are so organized, they have not just people but extra people in the hardest precincts even for us to organize,” said Polk County Democratic Party Chairman Sean Bagniewski. “All of us want to read the book of how they’re doing what they’re doing after the caucuses. It’s a level of organization like we’ve never seen before.”

1. True

Last week I was making phone calls for my county inviting Dems to Warren's Town Hall. And there was a great turn out. https://flic.kr/p/2gSu7Wb

She is Presidential material.

3. "Where's this coming from?"

It's something I remember an organizer for the Clinton campaign saying in 2007. Wherever they looked in the early states (and later) Obama was already there.
