Yesterday:

[Susan Montee] says Democrats did a poor job of getting their message out during the past election and a poor job of getting Democratic-inclined voters in rural areas to the polls. But she says there’s little that an auditor’s candidate could have done to drive up voter turnout.

Montee has served in various Democratic Party roles over the years. She declined to say whether she was interested in a Democratic leadership position after her auditor’s term ends in January.

Let’s not be that narrow, Democrats didn’t just do a poor job getting Democratic-inclined voters in rural areas to the polls, they also did a poor job getting Democratic-inclined voters in urban areas to the polls. I need to write up and finish up the Kansas City Ward-by-Ward summary that proves that exact point.

And… today

Susan Montee is the new Chair of the Missouri Democratic Party!

Considering the fabulous electoral record of the Missouri Democratic Party in the last decade, I suspect this will be the last we hear of Susan for 2 years or so.
