We’ve been extremely busy at ActBlue this week, as Democrats come together to support the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Barack Obama.
After Senator Obama reached the delegate numbers needed to clinch the nomination on Tuesday night, we sent an email encouraging ActBlue Democrats to show their support by creating a personal fundraising page for Obama.
Here is an excerpt of the email:
Now it’s time for Democrats to come together and start working for victory in November. ActBlue wants to help you do your part.
Build a personal fundraising page and ask each of your friends and family members to contribute to the Obama campaign.
Build it right here. Ask right now.
Join the legions of Democrats who are ready to fight.
Become a fundraiser and create a fundraising page.
Less than 36 hours later, dozens of people have taken up the fight for the White House and started fundraising for Obama on ActBlue. This morning, the Los Angeles Times cited these new ActBlue pages as "a measure of [Obama’s] power on the Internet." As ActBlue is a barometer for the strength of Obama’s online support, we need you to get involved and prove that a united Democratic Party cannot and will not be defeated.
From all of us here at ActBlue, thanks.
