Dems go 19th Century in Philly

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Democrats -- though not the Sestak camp itself -- will use street money (the legal practice of doling out cash to local party leaders) to get out the vote in Philadelphia, the Huffington Post reports today. Yes, it's a very throw-backy thing to do, state Rep. Dwight Evans tells Sam Stein:

"You got this huge debate of the 21st century politics versus the 19th century," he said. "I think you need a combination of both. What happens is the people on the street operation say 'OK, you need the commercials and the direct mail and all this stuff. But you also need to ensure that you are out there working.' This is a form of making sure you have full coverage."
