| Last week we learned that the Elizabeth Warren GOTV effort is vastly under-performing Scott Brown's ground game. The MassVictory campaign has yielded twice as many phone calls as Warren's effort. If the Obama campaign has its way this weekend, Warren stands to fall farther behind. Last evening Obama for America sent out an email asking for Massachusetts grassroots volunteers to go to New Hampshire this upcoming weekend.

This marks the second weekend in a row progressives have been taken away from campaigning. Many in the grassroots spent last weekend at Netroots Nation in Providence, RI and participated in PRIDE Weekend.
During the same time canvassing for Brown was happening across the state. Including by the Boston Republican City Committee who spent Saturday canvassing Roslindale. The West Roxbury Transcript highlighted the city committee's activities in last weeks issue.
Massachusetts Republican Party spokesman Tim Buckley said, "I am not sure how Professor Warren feels about the Commonwealth's liberal activists heading north, but I know Massachusetts Republicans are hard at work in Massachusetts. This is evidenced by the outstanding number of voter contacts we have achieved so far."
Massachusetts Democratic Party spokesman Kevin Franck declined multiple opportunities to offer comment on this story.
