• From Sioux City to Davenport

    We've got less than eight weeks to go until the Iowa caucuses.

    People across the nation will be watching what our state does and how we use this moment to grow our effort for 2012. While we already have our candidate, it's up to us to make the most of the spotlight by building the campaign we need to win next November. You know how we do that -- meeting and engaging with our neighbors and fellow supporters, and setting the goals and strategy to move the campaign forward here.

    That's why we just re-launched http://iowa.barackobama.com -- and I wanted you to be among the first to know.

    Check it out -- and while you're there, take a minute to tell your story about why you're a part of the effort for 2012. We'll share your story to inspire other Iowans to stand up and join this campaign.

    On the site, you can pledge to stand with the President at the caucuses, find your nearest office, and get the latest news on the work in our state. Throughout the coming months, it will be the place to go to find out what's happening on the ground near you and how to get involved.

    We know the next two months will be crazy. As the media increasingly focuses in on our state and the Republican candidates sharpen their attacks on one another, our mission will stay the same. We have to build the strongest campaign we can to continue our fight for a fairer economy that will restore security to the middle class -- where everyone plays by the same rules, and where hard work and responsibility pay off. That's what matters to this movement, and it's why we're using these caucuses as an opportunity to continue organizing and building momentum for 2012.

    Four years ago, this state made history, proving that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. To win in 2012, we'll have to work even harder and smarter.

    Our neighborhood teams are growing locally and ramping up their organizing efforts across our state, and we've got eight offices up and running from Sioux City to Davenport. You should get involved now -- both online and offline.

    So share your story about why you're a part of this campaign today, on our state's re-launched site for organizing:
