On Tuesday, August 14th, South Carolina faith leaders joined in a conference call. Just as was done in 2008, the faith community is helping to organize within the Obama campaign. Obama Campaign Senior Advisor for Southern States, Rick Wade, as well as the White House stated, “The faith community has always been the people to mobilize around important issues.” Michael Blake, National Director of Operation Vote, and Michael R. Wear, Obama for America Faith Vote Director, spoke about strategy and goals for engaging congregations and communities. September 9th will be a day of action to get faith leaders involved and active in the campaign.
