Obama Campaign Holding Over 170 Events Statewide; Over 4,200 Nationwide
DES MOINES – Tomorrow and Sunday, Obama Campaign volunteers in Iowa will participate in an “It Takes One to Get to Six” day of action as part of the "It Takes One" nationwide initiative. The Day of Action begins the 60 day countdown to early vote and the 100 day countdown to Election Day. The campaign is holding canvass kick-off media events in 11 Iowa cities and over 170 events statewide.
Last week, First Lady Michelle Obama kicked off the "It Takes One" initiative with a video. Watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbWk_PYg600. Iowans can find their local canvass at www.barackobama.com/one and follow the canvassing action on Twitter by using the hashtags #ItTakesOne and #60DaysOut.
"That one conversation you have, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the difference between waking up on November 7th and feeling the promise of four more years or asking yourself, could I have done more?," said First Lady Michelle Obama.
This election is a clear choice between President Obama’s vision to create jobs, reclaim security for the middle class and restore the basic values that make our country great, and Mitt Romney, who wants to continue tax giveaways to millionaires and billionaires and return us to the failed policies of the past, including letting Wall Street write its own rules.
From Council Bluffs to Davenport, volunteers are talking to their neighbors about President Obama’s vision for an economy built to last, because they know how much is at stake.
"Every single person can make a difference in this election – and this week we’re asking supporters to start by taking one action that will help grow our campaign," said Iowa State Director Brad Anderson. "The idea is that if we all commit to doing at least one thing to organize our communities, the combined impact will ensure that this President can keep moving this country forward for another four years."
