Calvin Smyre: Registering & Organizing Voters Can Turn Georgia Blue

State Rep. Calvin Smyre (D - Columbus), a delegate to this year's convention and former head of the Georgia Democratic Party, was asked how he thought the Empire State of the South could turn blue in November.

His answer?

"I think through organizing and registering voters," state Rep. Smyre said.

Smyre made the comment after being told that Democratic strategist Paul Begala thought Georgia could deliver its 15 electoral voters to Barack Obama in November.
