Below the fold, the full press release.
Austin — The Travis County Democratic Party is proud to celebrate historic East Austin. Since launching the coordinated campaign, the Travis County Democratic Party has blockwalked a half dozen East Austin neighborhoods, phonebanked voters and activists in nearly two dozen precincts, and reached out to all Travis County and Austin Elected officials. During this historic election, the Travis County Democratic Party is working to Turn Texas Blue by actively engaging every community and encouraging East Austin to register to vote and mobilize the community.
The 2008 Travis County Democratic Party Coordinated Campaign marks the largest coordinated effort to elect every candidate from the White House to the Courthouse. The campaign has started earlier than ever before and has the laudable goal of knocking on every door and call every number in East Austin.
