Perhaps they should leave the organizing to the Patrick campaign and just send over whatever money and people they have, said one poster.
Others said they should ignore the state party effort – dubbed Victory 06 – and take instruction only from Patricks campaign.
One community activist, who did not want to be named, told the Herald: Who is Victory 06 pulling for, Kerry Healey?
Late yesterday Patricks campaign manager John Walsh took to the blog in an effort to quell the criticisms of the state party, whose support and funding Patrick needs to win a victory over Lt. Gov. Kerry Healeys well-funded and GOP-backed campaign.
I thought youd all be sleeping for a day or two – I am learning every day and I guess even I underestimated the power of the grassroots – you guys are ready to rumble already, Walsh posted to the complaint-filled blog thread. Give MassDems a break – the lack of early communication with Team Patrick is my error.
I promise youll find this combined team will be even better than what weve had to date, Walsh said.
State Democratic Party spokeswoman Cyndi Roy said, As we work out the kinks, everyone can rest assured that were all working to elect Deval and Tim (Murray) on Election Day.
Meanwhile, just to the right of the article, is a little online poll that has Patrick in the lead. With Herald readers!
