Marion, Muscatine and Linn counties win Harkin's "Building Blue" contest

Just got this e-mail from Senator Tom Harkin:

Three weeks ago, I announced a second Building Blue contest, to help our Iowa County Democratic Party organizations to make their final push towards election day.  After our nominating round, 10 great counties from every region of Iowa were selected to receive $500 in support and a chance to win $2,500 in the final round.

Now, after more than 1800 total votes from all across Iowa, I am proud to announce the top 3 counties and winners of Building Blue II: Counting the Counties.

The second and third place counties, and winners of an additional $500 for the November election are Muscatine County and Linn County.  The first place county, and winner of an additional $2,500 for the November election is Marion County.

Congratulations to all the county parties that won additional support for their turnout programs.

Speaking of voter mobilization, Senator Harkin will take a Get Out the Vote Bus Tour around the state from Saturday through Monday. Event details are after the jump.
