Bleeding Heartland: Hubler criticizes GOTV effort

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

... What Hubler says here about the GOTV effort is similar to what I am
hearing from people all over this state. We lost statehouse races we
should not have lost, races the House Democrats felt confident about
going into the election. I have not crunched the numbers myself to
confirm, but some are saying that the "drop-off" (that is, the number
of people who cast a vote for president but not for state House or
Senate candidates) was much greater this year than in 2004. ... The
"Kurt" referred to in this message is Rob Hubler's son Kurt Hubler,
Democratic candidate in House district 99 (Pottawattamie County). He
lost narrowly to Doug Struyk, a former Democrat who switched parties
and was one of the candidates supported by the American Future Fund
during the final days of the campaign.
