The 2016 presidential marathon began this week when Hillary Rodham Clinton had a very visible, heavily promoted White House lunch with President Obama, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie threw a political punch at one of his potential rivals for the Republican nomination.
All those cheeky, annoying, occasionally profane emails sent out by the Obama for America campaign are going nowhere.
President Barack Obama heads toward Election Day with an apparent lead over Republican Mitt Romney among early voters in key states that could decide the election.
Based on ballots already cast in states that allow early voting, Mitt Romney would need to win 65 percent of remaining voters in North Carolina, 59 percent in Iowa and Colorado, 58 percent in Nevada, and 55 percent in Florida and Ohio, President Obama's campaign manager said Saturday.
Convinced they were outclassed by the Obama campaign's ground game four years ago, Republican Party officials say they are ringing more doorbells, making more personal phone calls and soliciting more early ballots this year to level the playing field for nominee Mitt Romney.
Led by a surge in Hispanic voters, President Obama's campaign said Thursday that Democrats are leading the party registration fight in nearly every battleground state this fall as campaign officials try to combat disillusionment among Democrats after last week's presidential debate.
President Obama turns 50 on Aug. 4. So naturally, his personal moment has become the "50 for 50 Sweepstakes," an aggressive Democratic campaign tool aimed at grass-roots loyalists.
Call him the Digital Candidate: President Barack Obama is asking supporters to use Facebook to declare "I'm In!" for his re-election campaign and is using Twitter to personally blast out messages to his nearly 9 million followers.
One million have responded in the past week, says Jeremy Bird, national field director for the campaign.
"Our goal is to pass along what we've learned from the 2012 campaign," says Mr. Bird, adding that nearly 80 percent of the survey respondents want to keep volunteering, primarily to support President Obama's legislative agenda.
