Obama Campaign Still Asking for Contributions…

December 3, 2012 2:17 am  

(Politicker) – In what he called “my last election,” President Barack Obama scored a hard-fought but comfortable victory over Mitt Romney last month, but that doesn’t mean his email list will not longer be hit up for campaign cash. To wit, Mr. Obama’s electoral operation, Obama for America, is asking their supporters to contribute after filling out a form backing his plan to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

“Thanks for sharing your story. The next chapter begins today. Stand with President Obama for the next four years,” a subsequent contribution form declares. Suggested donation amounts range from $15 to $1,000 and a picture of Mr. Obama is presented with the text, “Stand with me, work with me, let’s finish what we’ve started.”

It’s not a surprise Mr. Obama’s operations are still moving forward in some form; his campaign manager, Jim Messina, had already publicly signaled that Obama for America would continue to exist.

“The one thing I know is that people want to be involved in supporting the president’s agenda in the next four years,” he said at a POLITICO breakfast after the election. “How that looks is a discussion we have to have with our grassroots.”

However, Mr. Messina did indicate the fundraising itself will change.

“I think anything’s possible,” he explained. “What’s true is just from FEC law, the campaign needs to shut down. We cannot expend funds for non-presidential activities. So we have got to figure out what we do next. That’s a conversation we’re having with our supporters now.”
