Iowa Independent: Dean: "We can't afford to lose a single vote in Iowa"
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent
Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean called Iowa "one of
the most important swing states in America" at the University of Iowa
Friday. "We didn't win Iowa last time," Dean said in his first Iowa
City visit since a rally the night before the 2004 caucuses. "If we
win Iowa this time, we will win the presidency of the United States of
America." Riding into town on a red white and blue Obama "Register For
Change" bus, Dean stressed voter registration, early voting, and
volunteering. "We can't afford to lose a single vote in Iowa, I'm not
kidding. Not one," said Dean, asking the mostly student crowd to
pretend the eager staffers in the back armed with voter registration
forms ware big burly security guards. "They won't let you past them
until you get signed up."
