Barack Obama For President 2008 Los Angeles Grass Roots Organization Experiences Explosive Growth
(Los Angeles, CA - February 08, 2007) The campaign-related grass roots organization BO2K8 / ObamaLA has increased membership by 150% in its first month of existence. The group exists to build and encourage the support needed to propel Barack Obama, the Democratic party’s newest and brightest star, to the White House in November 2008.
The group’s website, www.BO2K8.com, was rolled out at the start of 2007 and features current information about Obama, provides information about its activities and offers a means to not only sign up with the grassroots movement but also to donate online though a stream-lined and secure process of “Act Blue” (Democratic PAC) dollar amounts of up to the maximum allowed by law.
Los Angeles is widely known to be one of the nation’s largest sources of both campaign money and support for Democratic presidential candidates. So check out the website today to find out how you can join the extensive talent already involved (covering the spectrum from entertainment to politics and other community leaders) who will conduct GOTV (get out the vote) activities and all manner of campaign activities in the future.
Obama, only the third African-American to be elected to Senate since Reconstruction, is expected to announce his intention to run for president in 2008 this weekend. He was catapulted into the national political limelight when he gave the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic Convention, just shortly after a decisive victory over Alan Keyes in Illinois. Since that time, he has served on the Senate Foreign Relations Committe, and introduced the Iraq De-Escalation Act, which would cap troop levels and begin a phased withdrawal of all troops by early 2008. Obama continued the theme introduced in the convention speech for his second book, The Audacity of Hope, published last year.
