COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa -- The Clinton campaign is planning to make "door or phone contact" with all of their top supporters across Iowa in the next two days before the caucuses.
Those supporters -- in caucus campaign parlance -- are classified as Ones and Twos. (Ones are people who've signed a supporter card, and Twos are those who have pledged their support verbally. The ranking goes from One to Five, with Fives being people who would never support the candidate -- even if he or she cured their child's cancer, spokesman Jay Carson joked.)
He said it was important for campaigns to stay in contact with supporters to ensure they still plan to caucus for their candidate. It's especially true when a campaign is relying heavily on first-time caucus-goers. "Sixty percent of our Ones and Twos have never caucused before," said Carson, who noted that was more than any other candidate, as far as they could tell. (Just asking, is Hillary's camp playing the expectations game here?)
Part of that get-out-the-vote effort will include "door knockers" for all the for "Ones and Twos" in the state. The nearly two-foot long pieces of thick paper -- decorated with color photos on one side and print on the other -- are designed to hang from door knobs.
One side reads: "A new beginning for America starts with us!" and it includes a line from the Des Moines Register endorsement.
The other side reminds people when and where to caucus, and includes the admonition: "I'm Iowa, the contest for the Democratic nomination is as close as it has ever been. If just one out of every three Hillary supporters decides not to participate in the Iowa caucuses, we won't be successful. Hillary Clinton can provide the leadership and the new beginning America needs. But to do so, Hillary will need all of her supporters to join together at their local caucus locations."
