Organizing for Action ‘supports’ Obama agenda — but won’t sell Syria strike

- The Washington Times - Thursday, September 5, 2013

Organizing for Action, the successor of Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, confirmed Tuesday that the group will not lobby on President Obama's behalf to support a military strike against Syria, the Washington Examiner first reported.

OFA Executive Director Jon Carson told supporters during a weekly conference call that the group has "so much going on on other issues" it doesn't have time for Syria.

"We've certainly heard from all sides of this including people who are just looking for more information on the subject," Mr. Carson said, according to the Washington Examiner. "What I definitely want you all to know is that OFA supports President Obama and the agenda that Americans voted for on Nov. 6, but we don't always actively organize around every issue, and the debate in Congress over the Syria vote is not one that OFA is planning on organizing around."
