Obama Org Kicks Off 2010 Campaign

BY Nancy Scola | Monday, April 26 2010

And so it begins, like so many things these days, with a video. Organizing for America kicks off its 2010 campaigning with many congressional and local seats up for grabs across the country. They're calling it Vote 2010. A full site is to follow.

In the video, President Obama ticks off Administration accomplishments, and then warns of special interests seeking to roll them back. Obama's looking for the major assist he got back in 2008. "This year, I need your help once more," he says. One thing supporters can do right away, according to OFA, is to promise that you'll indeed turn out and vote this year.
