"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Upcoming Dean events in your town

posted by annatopia at Friday, June 06, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Howard Dean will be campaigning vigorously in several states over the next few weeks.

He'll be in Mount Pleasant, Iowa this Sunday June 8. This event is open to the public. Tickets are available by calling (515) 244-8702. more details can be found here.

On Monday, June 9, Dean will be in Austin, Texas for a rally and a fundraiser. The rally begins at 8pm and is free and open to the public (donations will be encouraged due to the upcoming second quarter fundraising deadline). For directions and information, visit Dean for Texas.

On Friday, June 13, Dean will appear at the Wisconsin Democratic Convention. This is a biggie, folks. If you're a Wisconsin resident, it's very important to show up and support Dr Dean, because your presence will be influential in opening people up to Dean's candidacy. There's a public rally at 4:30 pm and the convention begins at 8:00pm. You must register in order to attend the convention. It's only $20.00! Call 608-255-5172. You can also sign up and get more details on this event here.

On June 20-21, Minnesota will host the Democratic National Committee's annnual summer meeting. Democratic bigwigs in attendance will include the head of each state's Democratic Party. Dean will appear on June 20. I may be mistaken, but no details are provided about public attendance. Are there any Minnesota residents out there who can provide this information? Regardless of whether the public can attend, it might be a good idea to start organising a public reception for Dr Dean in front of the convention hall. Minnesota for Dean, are you listening? Here is where I found the info.

update Also, June 23 is the big Declaration Celebration! Howard Dean will formally annouce his candidacy in downtown Burlington, VT. As this happens, people across the nation will hold Declaration parties. To find an event in your area, visit The official declaration and public rally will take place in downtown Burlington, VT and as soon as we have the exact time and location, we'll post it.

Friday June 27 is Texas Bush-Whack house party night! One of our goals is to raise at least $30,000 (before matching funds of course) or more for Dean before the second quarter fundraising deadline. For information on attending or hosting a Bush-Whack Party, please email or visit our website. update I forgot to mention that Dean will make an appearance at the Bush-Whack parties via a conference call. Sorry 'bout that!

If you know of any upcoming Dean appearances that are not posted here, leave them in the comments! Thanks!

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
