Rove Focused On Building Grass Roots Organization
U.S. News and World Report reports that White House counselor Karl Rove "is focused on quietly building "the best grass-roots organization ever. His goal is to name a Bush coordinator in 29,000 crucial precincts in 17 key target states, and the campaign is 95 percent of the way there right now. Similarly, Rove says the campaign has now recruited 980,000 of the 1 million pro-Bush volunteers it hoped to have signed up by Election Day."
