2012 ELECTIONS: REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK: Tsai seeks the hearts of voters on east coast

When it comes down to -business, the DPP could make better use of the traditional tactics to spread their campaign messages.

However, the party no longer ignores the east coast, having established more than 100 “contact points” in Aboriginal communities in eastern Taiwan since Tsai assumed the chair of the party in 2008, despite knowing the “returns” might be limited.

The DPP’s goal for the January presidential election is modest. “We want to make sure every DPP supporter goes to the poll on Jan. 14, 2011. It’s that simple,” said one party official, who wished to remain anonymous because he was not authorized to speak on the matter.
