Clinton Urges Californians To Get Out The Vote By Phone

(CBS)
From CBS News' Fernando Suarez:

SAN JOSE, CALIF. -- Hillary Clinton announced tonight that her campaign is making a push to call 1 million Golden State voters this weekend during what they're calling a "BYOP" Party or "Bring Your Own Phone".

Clinton reached for her cell phone, opened it up and told the crowd, "This weekend those of you who have a cell phone, be part of our bring your own phone-calling effort, we're going to call a million Californians over this weekend! So as you leave, someone may say 'Will you come to a BYOP party?' And I hope you'll say 'yes' because we're going to do something that has never been done before. This is a grassroots generated effort everybody can do it."

Clinton continued, "I want you to personally tell them, 'I need you. I need you to come out on Tuesday to be part of what we are putting together.' This is a campaign to take back America!" Clinton is fighting for every vote in each battleground state as Super Tuesday looms.

"We are the people who understand that the future is what America is about. And if we have an election where it is the future that is at stake, I have no doubt about what the outcome is," said Clinton to the crowd of what police estimated to be around 10,000 people.

"I'm asking for your help. I want your help now on Tuesday to go and give me the chance to do with you what we know we can do together. There is no doubt in my mind that America's best days are ahead of us."

Clinton will continue to campaign in battleground states between now and Super Tuesday, with stops in Missouri, New Mexico, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York in the days to come.
