Century of the Common Iowan: Camp Bayh coming to Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
"Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Indiana) is flooding Iowa with 25 campaign staffers to help Hawkeye State Democrats in the midterms, a move designed to help build good will with influential caucus-goers should he run for president in 2008. The Indiana Democrat is also sending 15 staffers to New Hampshire as well as three to Nevada and two to South Carolina.
The Democratic National Committee is expected to ratify a proposal next week to haveNevada and South Carolina join Iowa and New Hampshire on the early part of the party's presidential nominating calendar.
Five staffers will remain in Indiana, where the Democratic senator trained these new campaign operatives at his campaign school 'Camp Bayh.'
Bayh is not the only potential presidential candidate placing people in important early states this fall. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin) has established a similar campaign training program, while Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tennessee) has a paid staffer on the ground in Iowa."
Wow, 25 campaign staffers here in Iowa. I know the Selden Spencer campaign is getting one of them.
