Former President Barack Obama is no longer pushing his agenda from the White House, but he is still in charge of the nationwide network of volunteers who helped get him elected and are now setting their sights on November’s midterm election.
Born in 2008, Obama for America (OFA) morphed into Organizing for America so it could legally have access to 13,000 email addresses amassed during two presidential campaigns.
It was about “transforming the YouTubing-Facebooking-texting-Twittering grassroots organization that put Mr. Obama in the White House into an instrument of government.
And the mission has also shifted from leaning on lawmakers to getting leftwing candidates elected.
Politico published the states and districts on OFA’s midterm election “hit list.”
