Plea to DNC: Don't forget Wyoming as you plan for the 2012 50-state strategy

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz at a 2009  town hall meeting in Florida 
Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), new chair of the DNC, spoke at the noon keynote. She wanted to let us know that Howard Dean's 50-state strategy will return for the 2012 election. In fact, she will meet with Howard Dean next week to talk about that very thing. She also said this:
The Netroots brought the nation together for Pres. Obama in 2008. Our top priority for next year -- ramping up the participation of the Netroots. We can't do it without you.
It's great to be valued. The DNC dropped a field team into Wyoming prior to the 2008 Democratic caucuses. Every county reported record turnouts. Thousands of new voters registered in Laramie County. They voted that year but then quickly disappeared in 2010. Big question: how do we get back those voters and keep them engaged?

I'm here looking for some answers....
