About a week ago I got an email from the Deval Patrick Committee letting me know about his big Grassroots campaign kickoff. The event is now about a week away and only nine people have pre-paid to go to the event. Here’s the email I received:
Please join us for this year’s Grassroots Cookout to celebrate the many accomplishments of this administration and to kick off our grassroots organizing for Governor Patrick’s re-election! The Governor is ready to have some fun with his wonderful supporters. There will be barbecuing, face painting, music, balloons, and more.
We invite anyone who would like to attend, so bring your family, your friends, and your neighbors. We hope to see you there!
Date: August 30th, at 2:00 p.m.
Location: Mass Laborers District Council
7 Laborers Way, Hopkinton
RSVP: (617) 367-2010 or email@example.com

With an email like that and the legions of on-line supporters the Governor has I would think that the pre-sales would be better than what is shown below, 8 days before the event.
We shouldn’t worry too much for Deval though. I’m sure David Axelrod’s firm who represents Deval and the SEIU through David Plouffe will make sure the SEIU purple shirts show up for Deval.
