Where Are The Young Men...A Weight on Their Shoulders?

Sully in Under the Golden Dome asks where are the young Democrats of Massachusetts? He notes that the Massachusetts Democratic Party can't even seem to find them.

I know where I find them.

They are to be found in the Progressive Democrats of Massachusetts along with other web-savvy veterans of the Dean and Reich campaigns.

They are to be found in the State House (state rep. Carl Sciortino) and the Somerville City Council (Alderwoman Rebekah Gewirtz).

And they are to be found in groups like Drinking Liberally. I recently received an invitation to drink and mock George Bush's State of the Union speech through an evite with over 500 invitees.

The Massachusetts Democratic State Party isn't reaching these young Democrats. But MassEquality, Neighbor 2 Neighbor Massachusetts, and State House campaigns like those of Carl Sciortino, Rebekah Gewirtz, Tim Schofield, and Pat Jehlen sure knew how to mobilize them.

I will be in Mansfield and Foxboro on Tuesday, February 7, for a special election to fill a vacant state representative seat. Come down and you will see an army of mostly young Democratic activists help Claire Naughton take a formerly Republican state rep. seat.
