The inside scoop on our 2010 plans

Organizing for America
Robert Bruce --

This week, President Obama outlined our top priority for the 2010 elections: Making sure first-time voters from 2008 return to the polls.

Now, it's up to us to make it happen.

So I hope you will join David Plouffe and me for our Vote 2010 online Strategy Session next Monday at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time, where we'll detail our plans to organize supporters and volunteers and get the job done.

You'll get the inside scoop on the plan you helped create, have a chance to ask questions, and participate in an online discussion with other supporters in your state.

Join us for the Vote 2010 Strategy Session this Monday at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Please RSVP today.

Get the inside scoop on our 2010 strategy. RSVP now.

Over the past few months, we've held hundreds of local strategy planning meetings across the country to make our 2010 campaign the most effective it can be. We've incorporated your feedback into a comprehensive electoral plan we think will make the difference in the November elections.

You told us your top priority was clear -- getting the millions of first-time voters from 2008 out to the polls once again. During Monday's Strategy Session, you'll find out exactly how we plan to make that happen.

We'll detail the role organizers and supporters like you will play and give you an insider look at our plan. You'll have a chance to ask David and me questions -- and we'll connect you in a live chat with staff and volunteers in your area so you can talk about your local strategy.

We've set an ambitious goal to protect the progress we've made together. And with corporate special interests able to spend freely to elect their allies, we can't afford to fail. All that we've worked for is at stake.

Once again, our strength will come from volunteers and organizers in every city and town. You will lead us to victory in November -- so we wanted to organize this special briefing to give you a closer look at our plans.

RSVP today:

6 supporters in Yorktown

Organizing for America
Robert --

"Republicans win back House, Senate." "Voters reject Obama's agenda."

If you listen to the talking heads on TV, it's like November 3rd's headlines are already written.

But here's what they don't know -- and it's why they're dead wrong: The same grassroots movement that knocked on the most doors, made the most calls, and inspired the most first-time voters in history in 2008 hasn't gone anywhere. In fact, we're gearing up to do it all again.

You heard it from the President on Monday. We've been planning for the fall campaign all year. And we know full well that winning nationally means organizing locally. Every House district holds an election this year, and all but five states will vote statewide for a governor or senator.

We need to get moving in VA -- and all over the country -- earlier than ever before. David Plouffe and I have taken a hard look at the numbers, and we need 6 donations from Yorktown by May 1st to kick off our efforts.

Please donate $5 or more to help us get more boots on the ground and start implementing our 2010 grassroots strategy now.

Please donate $5 to help reach the goal for your area.

Republicans are already calling 2010 a "referendum" on the President's agenda. They're campaigning to win majorities in Congress, so they can roll back the progress we've worked so hard to make. In fact, hundreds of candidates have signed a pledge, circulated by the conservative Club for Growth, to repeal health insurance reform.

If history is any guide, this is nothing to scoff at. In midterm elections, the president's party regularly loses seats. And an economy that's still recovering only makes our job harder.

But history has never seen anything like us.

While Sarah Palin gives big speeches mocking "community organizers," we're investing in them. Our field operation is far and away the largest of its kind in history. OFA staff and volunteers are pounding the pavement across the country.

From the earliest primaries in 2008 to the fight for Wall Street reform, while the attacks ads were flying and the cynics were talking down our chances, we've done what we know best -- keep on organizing. Investing in these resources is what will make it possible for us to set records again in 2010.

The headlines we wake up to on November 3rd are in our hands. But we can't succeed without a strong start -- and we can't do it without you.

Will you be the one of first in Yorktown to chip in $5 to get our grassroots off the ground? Donate now:

The fight ahead is going to be tough. With your help, Election Night doesn't have to be.
