Obama for America Rolls Out a New Smartphone App

It’s hard to believe, but Election Day is now less than 100 days away, and it’s going to take every single person to make a difference in this election. It could come down to just a few votes in a single state—and even one conversation could make the difference.

To help you build support in your neighborhood, there’s a new Obama for America smartphone app out today. The app, available for iPhone today, and soon also for Android, will make it even easier to connect with the campaign and pitch in wherever you are. This campaign’s strength has always come from the millions of grassroots supporters who are organizing their communities, and the new Obama app puts the latest organizing tools right at your fingertips.

With the new app, you can easily find local volunteer events near you, get a list of voters to talk to in your neighborhood, and access all the information you need to spread the word: from President Obama’s record to state-specific voting info. You can also stay up to date with breaking news, which you can instantly share with friends and family using Facebook, Twitter, email, and text messaging.

This app isn’t about being flashy—it’s about giving you the tools you need to make the biggest possible difference between now and Election Day.

982,967 donors want to re-elect President Obama

Obama for America campaign manager Jim Messina sent an email this morning with big news: 982,967 people have donated to the President’s campaign—and between the DNC and Obama for America, we’ve raised more than $70 million just in the past fundraising quarter.

That’s a big deal. It will go a long way toward fighting the special-interest money that the Republicans are amassing to take down not only the President’s re-election chances but also the reforms and economic recovery we’ve worked so hard to put in place.

Messina shared the facts and figures they’ll be reporting to the FEC:

  • In the third fundraising quarter of this year, 606,027 people donated to this campaign—even more than gave in the record-breaking previous quarter.
  • Those people gave more than 766,000 total donations—98 percent of them $250 or less, at an average amount of $56. That’s more than twice as many donations than we had at this point in the historic 2008 campaign.
  • We are focused on building infrastructure that will help us win in 2012. And each quarter we set a combined goal for the campaign and our allies at the Democratic National Committee. We far exceeded our goal of $55 million this quarter between the two organizations.
  • Together, Obama for America and the DNC raised more than $70 million. And it all happened during a summer when the President was focused on doing the job he was elected to do—a summer when we had to cancel a series of fundraising events and ask everyone to dig a little deeper.

He wrote, “If I could sum up this last quarter in a few words: Supporters like you came through.”

President Obama has a message to supporters as we close in on the milestone of 1 million donors taking ownership of this campaign. Take a minute to watch the video and then pitch in to help grow this movement.

Yours could be our millionth story, and you could even receive a phone call from the President. Watch and share the video and join the campaign.
