The Obama campaign expects people under the threat of a hurricane to be concerned about his campaign.
His camp sent out emails Sunday encouraging its volunteers to “phonebank” from Annapolis, Maryland on Monday at 5:30 PM.
The worst part of Hurricane Sandy is supposed to be hitting the region around that time.
From the email a tipster sent in:
From: Jeremy Bird, BarackObama.com [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Sunday, October 28, 2012 4:00 PM To: Jennifer Subject: Hey Jennifer, pitch in for Virginia this Monday
Jennifer – This past week, President Obama visited eight states in two days on his America Forward! tour. He hardly slept, he talked himself hoarse, and he was constantly on the move. He knows, just like you and I do, that what matters most in the last days of this election is what we do on the ground: The voters we talk to. The issues we discuss. Every step we take to help get people to the polls for President Obama and other Democrats. Folks in Annapolis are getting together on Monday to make some phone calls into Virginia. Can you make it?
What: Phone bank in Annapolis Where: 47 Spa Road Annapolis, MD 21401 When: Monday, October 29th Shifts start at 5:30 pm Or check out all of the phone banks near you.
With this election as close as it is, every voter we talk to could make the difference between winning and losing. Let’s make sure we wake up on November 7th without any regrets.
