Instead of going to a person's house, she is expecting people to gather in their homes or the homes of friends to hear her on a phone conference. Part of the email announcing this:
Winning this race will take the support of thousands of Wisconsinites just like you. House Parties will be happening across the state on January 15th and Mary Burke will be conference calling in. So we'd like to invite you to hear from Mary about her commitment to Wisconsin, why she's running, and how she will work every day to restore Wisconsin values and create jobs and opportunity for everyone.I don't know, but to me that's not getting me excited. In fact, the cynical side of me is willing to bet that the message is prerecorded. While I'm not a fan of Kathleen Vinehout either, at least she was going out to meet people all over the state until her accident.
I also find it peculiar that in the metro Milwaukee area there is apparently only one house party.
The Dems better figure out something quick or it will be getting very ugly in this state.
