McCain Sets Up Shop

Yesterday, Barack Obama announced he has begun setting up his Iowa campaign. Today, it's John McCain. McCain's Iowa State Chair Dave Roederer just sent this out to supporters. I'll try to find out more about Charlie Liebschutz as no bio info is included here.

It has been, and will continue to be, an honor to serve as Chairman of Senator McCain's Iowa campaign. Iowa is going to be a key battleground state and I look forward to helping Senator McCain bring his message of government reform, lower taxes, and American security to all Iowans. Our organization in this state continues to grow and I am pleased to announce that Charlie Liebschutz has joined the team as the campaign's Iowa State Director. Charlie and I will be working closely to expand our grassroots effort, which will be so critical in helping all Iowans to understand the substantive differences that exist between John McCain and Barack Obama.
If you have not already become involved in our grassroots organization, I ask you to sign-up to help organize your county or precinct. In the coming weeks and months, staff and volunteers will be canvassing the state to bring Senator McCain's message directly to the people of Iowa. I hope you will join this effort.

Senator Barack Obama has led in every Iowa poll versus John McCain in the last year. Obama won a decisive victory on January 3, 2008 in the Iowa Democratic Caucus. McCain finished a weak 4th place in the Republican Caucus.

Nearly 240,000 registered Democrats participated in the Iowa Democratic Caucuses in January versus 120,000 Republican Caucus attendees. Democrats have a significant voter registration edge in Iowa today with approximately 80,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans.

It is a fool’s game for Senator McCain to spend his limited resources in a state where Senator Obama will triumph by double digits in the November general election.

Double digits? Pretty brave prediction, Mitch:)
