There’s a dinner at a swank hotel in the nation’s capital, and the proverbial “remarks” before an adoring audience and Democratic lawmakers. President Obama will be there Monday night to lend a splashy boost to Organizing for Action, the 3-million member grassroots group that grew out of his 2016 campaign.

The White House revealed few details of the event. But it is bound to be enthusiastic.

Executive director Jon Carson recently announced that the aggressive organization has raised $13 million in donations would be the “biggest and smartest” grassroots in the nation.

Of interest to Republican strategists: he’s also announced their motto for the upcoming month. That would be “Action August,” an unusual theme for the four weeks of the year when politics traditionally cools to a simmer.

“While lawmakers are home for congressional recess, thousands of supporters will be holding events in key districts across the country,” advises Mr. Carson.

On their agenda: immigration reform, “gun violence prevention,” “calling out climate deniers” and “telling the truth about Obamacare.”
