Dems meet Beck rally with door-knocking campaign

The vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said Friday night that Democrats would be meeting Saturday's Glenn Beck rally with a door-knocking effort across the country.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said on MSNBC's "Hardball" that as conservative activists rallied on the National Mall, Democrats would be trying to stress to voters that theirs are the policies taking America forward.

"You mentioned the 200,000 that may or may not be on the Mall tomorrow," the congresswoman told host Christ Matthews. "The 200,000 people that matter tomorrow are the 200,000 activists who are going to be knocking on doors tomorrow for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's National Day of Action.

"We will do 200,000 door knocks tomorrow all across America, Chris, because our grassroots engine is second to none."

Wasserman Schultz predicated "a successful election day, or at least, certainly, better than most people in Washington are thinking we're going to have on Nov. 2."
