Dems Tell Story of the Obama Years, District by District

BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, October 14 2010

It's been busy over in the DNC's new media shop. Another new product launched today: PROGRESS, a localized micro-site that drills down into what the changes made by the Obama administration mean in your neck of the woods. Drawing on data from federal agencies and congressional reports, the Democrats' new site tells tales of job creation and tax cuts over the last 20 months in and around voters' own congressional districts. Perhaps most compelling for normal folks is the stories about recovery projects funded by Obama's stimulus package. Didja know they're rehabbing the Staten Island Ferry Terminal?

Democrats might not win in November because of their new tools, but they're trying very hard to avoid losing because they don't have them.
