Hundreds of Obama supporters packed the house at events across the state to watch last night's first presidential debate.
Linda, a long-time volunteer who set up the standing room only watch party at OFA New Mexico's Albuquerque headquarters, liked what she saw:
"It was pretty amazing! The room was packed. We had really high energy."
More than that, Linda knows that the hard work of dedicated people like her will keep America moving forward:
"I can't think of anything I'd rather do right now than spend all kinds of time just doing everything I can to get President Obama re-elected. This is not the time to sit on the sidelines. This is the time to get involved — now. We need to do all we can to put our power together as one and get President Obama re-elected."
Early voting starts across New Mexico this Tuesday. Commit to vote: http://commit.barackobama.comRead More…
As September came to a close, tons of supporters and volunteers participated in New Mexico's Weekend of Action! OFA New Mexico did some chile roasting, registered voters of all ages, listened to some great music, and had plenty of fun. Take a look!
In the end, elections come down to one thing: votes. That’s why Obama 2012 volunteers spent this weekend registering voters across the country as a part of the September weekend of action. Early voting has already started in Iowa, and voter registration deadlines are quickly approaching in many states. Check out the action from this weekend, and make sure you’re ready to vote.Read More…

At a canvass kick-off in Falls Church and a meet-and-greet at the Richmond Pride Fest this weekend, BD Wong talked with supporters about issues that matter to him, and why President Obama is the best candidate to address those issues.
BD believes President Obama is a president for all Americans, and urged supporters to continue the important work of reaching out to other supporters and making sure every Virginian has a voice in this election by registering to vote.
“President Obama is the first president that has been in office in my lifetime that I feel is talking to me when he expresses his aspirations for the country,” BD said. “And, you know, I’m OLD. I think because I am not only a member of the Asian-American Pacific Islander community, but also a member of the LGBT community, I feel surprisingly included.
“I am also really into people who communicate effectively, and let’s face it, he possesses that rare gift of being able to bring a country of such profound diversity together with his words.”
Thanks to BD Wong for joining us for the Weekend of Action.Read More…
