It looks like President Obama is making a play for Arizona. We have Congressional Districts and a Senate seat that can turn blue if we try.
I will be studying abroad in Denmark this Summer so I won't be able to work at this 100% but I know there are many of us who want to get involved, now is our chance! According to the New York Times," President Obama’s re-election campaign is dispatching workers across Arizona’s college campuses and Latino neighborhoods this spring, registering as many new voters as they can in an organized, three-month effort to determine whether they can put this unlikely state into play for Democrats this November."
I'm writing because Barack needs you out there this summer.(just as a side note, FLOTUS and VP Biden will be in AZ this month. Check with Kossack Azazello for more info.
Through the Organizing Fellowship program, you can work in a full-time volunteer position, learn the principles of field organizing, and then carry out important grassroots activities on the ground.
This summer, thousands of these organizing fellows are going to help lead our grassroots organization -- recruiting volunteers and running events to help more people make their voices heard.
It's an amazing experience -- one that could change your life while shaping this country for decades to come.
Apply now to be a summer organizing fellow, or pass this note along to someone you know who might be interested.
If you take a position as a fellow, you'll help more people to step up at the local level, where there are so many opportunities to make so much change. You'll register voters, recruit and train volunteers, run phone banks, have conversations with people on their front porches, and build the relationships that will bring your community together to fight for progress.
There will be difficult days, and long ones, too. But being an organizer is one of the best experiences you can have working in politics.
The people who take on this challenge will not only help move this country forward -- they'll also become the next generation of leaders.
The strength of this organization comes from the people involved. We never could have come this far without folks like you who have a passion for organizing and a commitment to finishing what we started together.
If you're ready to play a critical role in our grassroots campaign, apply now -- or forward this note to someone you know who may be interested:
As of now, AZ has:
Precincts Democratic Green Libertarian Republican Americans Other TOTAL
2,240 952,907 4,929 22,530 1,134,094 148 1,037,007 3,151,615
Just having registered Dems we almost rival the amount of Republicans. Independents make up the 2nd most registered group of voters--I think we can sway them our way! ( I think it is funny that there are only 148 Registered Americans in AZ, LOL) I have often encountered people who decided not to vote the in last election because they thought that their vote wouldn't count.
Right now Obama stands behind Romney at 43.3% of the vote.
