Maine Democratic Party: I Hate OFA!

Last week, I wrote about the total disaster which Organizing for Action had become for the Democratic Party.

Granted, it was a total bust in red states.

But blue states especially hated it:

From the Daily Beast:

“Yes, it sure is,” Katie Mae Simpson, executive director for the Maine Democratic Party, replied. “OFA showed up in Maine, organized a press conference on saving [Obamacare], with one of our Dem legislative leaders speaking, all without ever mentioning that they were in state and organizing. They hired someone I know, which is somewhat helpful, but my god, they don’t have a very good alliance-building process.”

The Maine Democratic Party leadership shared their concerns, too. Keep in mind that Maine has been a reliably blue state since 1992, but for the first time in its history, a Republican presidential candidate won an electoral vote! For the first time in over nearly 20 years, a Republican Congressman represents the state of Maine.

Imagine the damage that OFA can wreak in other blue states in the next two years!
