The scoop from Washington

Obama campaign used Kansas firm for conference call: Contrast with GOP

| No Comments

WASHINGTON-- Last Thursday, I reported how, when I called in for a Republican National Committee conference call, I asked where the operator I talked to was based and was told Manila. Today--Monday--when I phoned into an Obama for American conference call featuring campaign manager Jim Messina and top strategist David Axelrod, I asked the same question to the operator; she told me she was in Wichita, Kansas.

UPDATE...As I reported last week...in the link above....the RNC uses Verizon. My point in this: my focus was/is about where the operators are .....the people who do the work....not the main contractors...
