President Obama Announces Vote 2010:
In 2008, Americans in record numbers voted for change. But the health insurance companies, the Wall Street banks, and the special interests are already eyeing this November’s elections as an opportunity to put their allies back in power. Many Republican candidates have openly promised to run on a platform to repeal health reform, and roll back the progress that President Obama has made so far.
But grassroots Democrats and Organizing for America have an ambitious plan to reach out to voters this election season, and reconnect with the millions of people who were inspired to participate in the political process for the first time in 2008. We'll do it the same way we did in 2008—reaching out to voters on the phones, at their doors, and in their communities, one conversation at a time.
Volunteers have already pledged over 10 million hours in support of candidates who stood with the President and helped pass historic health reform. And volunteer leaders across the country are committed to seeing that the young people, African Americans, Latinos, and women who helped power President Obama's victory in 2008 stand together once again.
