DSCC: Take Back the Senate Roadmap

From Senator Harry Reid I've endorsed this online, you should check it out, too:

"The good news is that Senate Democrats have a roadmap for taking back the Senate in 2006 and stopping the right wing from taking over our country. We're going to out-organize, out-maneuver, and out-raise the Republicans to stop to their extremist agenda and return to the business of the American people. And you are the secret weapon.

Our roadmap is simple. First, we're going to build the campaign infrastructure we need to win elections across the country. From effective grassroots strategies to cutting-edge technology to trained communications experts, each one of our campaigns will have everything it needs to win.

Then we'll watch our opponents like a hawk, ready to hold right-wing Republicans accountable every time they pander to their extremist base at the expense of the broader national interest. Finally, we're going to use that momentum to deploy a nationwide grassroots army with cutting edge precision to get out the vote and sell the Democratic agenda. That's where you come in.

If you are ready to join our campaign to take back the Senate and ultimately to take our country back from right-wing Republicans, then I hope you will endorse our roadmap and declare that you are ready to do your part to help us succeed.

I wouldn't give this roadmap my personal approval unless I was confident that it was smart, it was based on fundamental Democratic values, and it would get results. I know this roadmap will work. Now, I need your help to make it succeed."

Here are some of the details:


1. Get the Democratic Message Out. Before we can convince a single voter, we need to make sure they know that Democrats stand for a foreign policy that will keep us safer; a strong economy that will put people to work; and quality, affordable health care for every American.

2. Recruit Top-Tier Candidates. Our campaigns depend on recruiting qualified, dynamic candidates who can take on Republican incumbents in key states. Thanks to early DSCC fundraising and organization, our recruitment efforts have been unparalleled. We already have outstanding Democratic challengers in a number of key states.

3. Coordinate all Levels of the Democratic Party. Because of our special legal status, the DSCC is able to coordinate directly with Senate campaigns and state-level Democratic Party committees. We will be instrumental players in statewide coordinated campaigns that will pool our resources and focus our party’s energy squarely on electing a Democratic Senate. In fact, the DSCC has already teamed up with the DNC and the state Democratic Parties to hire new staff with a variety of skills, including committed grassroots organizers and trained communications experts who can help spread the Democratic message on the ground.

4. Build the Best Technology. We will be providing a unified technology infrastructure based on top-notch open source software to every Democratic Senate campaign. This new platform will allow every one of our campaigns to make use of the newest online community building tools for a much lower cost than if each one had to develop its own systems.

Hold Republicans Accountable

1. Expose Right-Wing Republicans. Our crack truth squad is combing every vote cast and every public statement made by Republican incumbents and challengers so we can expose their true right-wing nature. We will use these facts to make sure that the media reports fully on the right wing’s lust for power. Voters need to know when Republican candidates are hiding their true out-of-the-mainstream ideology.

2. Speak Directly to the Voters. The DSCC’s Media Response Project is our long-term plan to make the case directly to the voters every time the Senate Republicans abuse their power to satisfy their radical right wing base and ignore the real needs of all Americans. Just this month, we worked together with the Montana State Democratic party to show voters there that Sen. Conrad Burns is not working for them.

Activate the Grassroots

1. Recruit a Grassroots Army. The hardest part of this roadmap is finding the thousands of volunteers we’ll need working day and night to succeed. That’s where you come in. Grassroots activists form the soul of any effective Democratic campaign and our quest to take back the Senate is no different.

2. Empower Activists With Our Message. We will make sure that every volunteer is trained in the best way to deliver the Democratic message. That way, when you are talking politics with your friends and neighbors, you’ll know precisely what to say to convince them to vote Democratic.

3. Outsmart Our Opponents. On Election Day, we’ll use cutting-edge computer modeling to identify exactly which doors we need to knock on in order to get out the Democratic vote. We’ll deploy our grassroots army precisely where they are needed to snatch up every vote.

1. It All Starts With You. We have the roadmap we need to take back the Senate in 2006, but it all starts with you. Without your support and your hard work our campaigns will never succeed. That’s why we need you to join our effort to take back the Senate and endorse our Take Back the Senate Roadmap today.
