Iowa Obama Campaign Launches "It Takes One to Get to Six" with Day of Action, Kicking off 60 Day Countdown to Early Voting
This past weekend, Obama Campaign volunteers in Iowa participated 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 began the 60 day countdown to early vote and the 100 day countdown to Election Day. The campaign held canvass kick-off media events in 11 Iowa cities and over 170 events statewide.
The event in Ames featured state Treasurer Mike Fitzgerald, who stressed the importance of reelecting President Obama in November. Mr. Fitzgerald spoke to volunteers on Saturday at the Story County Democratic Headquarters.
Last week, First Lady Michelle Obama kicked off the "It Takes One" initiative with a video. "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.
From Council Bluffs to Davenport, volunteers talked 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."
