Obama Campaign Transforms Into Lobbying Group

ObamaforAmerica

Today, Barack Obama’s re-election campaign website announced that his campaign organization, Obama for America, would be shifting over into a 501(c)4 political action organization: Organizing for America. In an email sent by Obama himself, the President wrote:

Benjamin —

Today, a new grassroots organization is being launched: Organizing for Action.

Following in the footsteps of the campaign you built, Organizing for Action will be an unparalleled force in American politics. It will work to turn our shared values into legislative action — and it’ll empower the next generation of leaders in our movement.

Michelle recorded a video to tell you more about the new organization — take a look and let OFA know you’re in.
