Hillary Sends Supporters Out For Obama

Hillary Clinton is ratcheting up her efforts to get her supporters engaged in Barack Obama's campaign, the Associated Press reports. In a conference call with as many as 2,000 of her primary supporters from all over the nation this afternoon, Clinton will urge them to get more actively involved with the Obama campaign in both time and money in what is being billed as a "Hillary Sent Me" effort.

Clinton reportedly will ask supporters to travel to a specific battleground state each week, starting with New Hampshire on September 27th. "Today I am asking all of you to stand up, hit the road and spread the word that we must elect Barack Obama president and we must send a filibuster-proof majority to Congress," Clinton will tell supporters according to prepared remarks provided to the AP. "This is a call to action. This is a must-do. We all have a role. And there is not a moment to lose."
