LIVE: An Election Day in the Life of A Congressional Campaign Manager

Lindsay Bubar and her fiance strolled down the sidewalk together holding hands, he in a business suit and she . . . well, I’m not going to dissect her wardrobe because press attention to women politicians’ attire is one of her pet peeves.

“That’s so cute,” I’m afraid I said, “the two of you holding hands on your way to vote. What do you do?”Lindsay, it turns out, is an extremely rare woman in a field that is almost entirely male. She is Congressman Henry Waxman’s campaign manager and the President of the National Women’s Political Caucus, LA Westside Chapter.

I interviewed Lindsay this morning after she returned to Waxman’s campaign headquarters.

I’ll tell you about her career, her political ambitions and, yes, her upcoming wedding, as the day goes on. Right now, I want to turn you over to Lindsay as she gives us her first dispatch on election day.

Things are strangely quiet. Most volunteers and staff went to the polls this morning before coming in to hit the phones, and most are still standing in line waiting to vote.

That’s a good sign for us, and all Democrats throughout the state of California. If we turn out our base, we will win, and lines at the polls on the Westside of Los Angeles certainly indicate the base is out. Most of the energy right now is coming from social media- posts from people who have voted, the passion behind their vote and reminders to their networks. It’s quite inspiring, and extends the sense of community on Election Day beyond your local polling place.

Social media has played an important part in this election, and you continue to see that today. At Waxman Headquarters, we are prepping for our day-long phone bank and answering voter calls, something we expect to continue throughout the day.
