Dems plan counter-convention in Fla



Democrats have been pretty tight-lipped about their plans to bracket the Republican National Convention in Tampa, but they have an aggressive program in the works to get their message out from outside the Tampa Bay Times Forum and in battleground states across the country.

"The hub of activity will be coordinated out of a rapid response war room just a short walk from the Republican convention in downtown Tampa and will include leading campaign and party surrogates and middle class Americans from all walks of life who have been victimized by Romney Economics.  Among other top campaign surrogates, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz will play a central role in the pushback efforts including kicking activities off in the war room this weekend."
