WASHINGTON - Michelle Obama is urging Organizing For America's network to connect and build - even between elections. She sent out an email to OFA's network Wednesday saying, "For the first time in a long time, our side gained some real momentum over the summer -- on everything from immigration reform to climate change. This is why we organize in between elections. We all have a personal stake in what happens over the next few years."
Then she asked "What is the number one issue you care about?" and urged the readers to tell her by linking to http://my.barackobama.com/Just-One-Question.
"We have some big challenges ahead, and how you decide to be part of them will be as important as ever," the First Lady wrote. "Barack is going to keep fighting for the things we believe in, and if he can count on you, too -- well, that's when we get things done."
It's clear to see that conservatives' political opponents aren't relaxing and enjoying their current advantage, they're honing their skills and preparing for the next battle. But neither are Illinois conservatives and Republicans. They've been spending several Saturdays over the last few months at activist and candidate training session held throughout the Chicagoland area.
The last scheduled Leadership Institute candidate and activist training for the area this fall is Saturday, September 28th. The training will be hosted by the Cook County Republican Party, Palos Township Republican Organization, Bremen Township Republican Organization, Rich Township Republican Organization, Orland Township Republican Organization and Worth Township Republican Organization.
