Democrats Build Ground Game in Arkansas

Molly Ball says Democrats are building an extensive ground operation in Arkansas in an attempt to re-elect Sen. Mark Pryor (D) in a tough midterm election environment.

"Democrats aren't advertising this office and 39 others like it that are scattered around Arkansas--in fact, their locations are a closely guarded secret. When I visited last week, having tracked it down through creative public-records sleuthing, I took Chita Collins, the field organizer on duty there, by surprise. But I wanted to see the evidence of what Democrats have been claiming they're building in states like this one, and what could be crucial to their uphill quest to keep the Senate: an Obama-style community-organizing effort of unprecedented scale for a non-presidential election."
