Obamas NC Ground Game Kicks off

Hi North Carolina!

My name is Amy Solomon, and I am the new organizer for North Carolina. I
will serve as the liaison between all of you and our National HQ here in
Chicago. I am going to be working with all of you for the next couple of
months so that as we get closer to the primary we will have tons of
volunteers ready to roll and a great organization so that we can win as
many of those 134 delegates as possible!

This Thursday, February 28th I will be holding short (5ish minutes)
conference calls with all of the difference groups to discuss ways to
get your groups involved in activities that will keep our campaign
moving forward. I encourage everyone in the group to call in and listen
to the ways that we can continue the momentum we have all the way
through May 6th.

The conference call dial-in number is: (641) 715-3200
And the access code is: 310591#
If there is cheesy music playing, that means that it hasn't started yet,
but it will soon. The conference won't be more than five minutes long,
so please try to dial in if you can!

Here are the different times for each of the different groups:
WNC for Change Call 1: 7:00 PM EST
WNC for Change Call 2: 7:10 PM EST
Charlotte, NC Call 1: 7:20 PM EST

Obama for America

Yes, we can!


Let's hope they actually set up shop

I'm tired of being unimportant in the primary process

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Yes we can!

Thanks for posting this. I assume that those of us who don't fit into any of those areas should pick the one closest to us?

I am guessing yes

The e-mail went out to about 675 Obama supporters in NC that are registered on his website. I plan on listening to the Raleigh call.

It is just really impressive how organized they are.

More than 60 people showed up

Tonight we had the first meeting of "Cabarrus for Obama".
More than 60 enthusiastic people showed up, black and white, young and old, Democratic, unaffiliated and even a few Republicans, from the older African-American gentleman to the white guy with a mullet!
It was a sight to behold in our red county.

Mullet guy was kickass.

He kept hinting that he was gonna try to sneak into our new Young Dems group, even though he was 40+. Oh, the badass-ness of business in the front, party in the back.

Got to send this info on to my boy.

8:50 is somewhere around 3 am in Germany but he might be up for it. He says everybody there is out until 2-3 am every night of the week, anyway. Guess he'll have to buy some Skype to telephone time. :)
