Remarkable. Extraordinary. Amazing. Epic. Inspiring. Awesome.
Those were some of the words used by our staff when we learned about an incredible milestone that was reached by a member of the Team IA family this week
As the "It Takes One" Weekend of Action gets underway, it's clear that Jim "Murph" Murphy is exactly the kind of supporter who will make the difference in this election. Our voter protection director, Lee Fink, perfectly illustrated just what an achievement Murph's 10,000 calls are.
In 2004, John Kerry lost Iowa by 10,059 votes. In other words, the difference between Barack Obama winning or losing is 10,000 votes...or one Murph.
This coming Weekend of Action is all about "It Takes One." in an age when our politics can sometimes seem small or cynical, a lot of folks will say that one person can't make a difference.
But now we know different. We know that one person can make a difference.
We know Murph.
