Every legit organizer, every legit campaign manager’s claim to fame is their Wellstone credentials: I was trained by Wellstone. So when I met folks at Wellstone it was like going behind the curtain and meeting the wizard.
Wellstone Action is out there making a real difference. And the principal way they make a real difference, they get up and fight for what they believe in. You know, you can't win if you don't fight, and Wellstone Action knows how to be effective because they know how to fight.
Wellstone gave our candidates a renewed sense of confidence; they believe they can win, and they have the tools to win. That wouldn’t have happened without Wellstone. Wellstone harnessed their potential.
