A former top White House official and the head of President Obama’s personal advocacy group is joining the board of a green energy company backed by a major Democratic donor that recently received millions in federal contracts.
Politics is optics. It’s difficult to win people’s hearts and minds without being well regarded. President Obama knows this all too well, which is why he and his closest supporters are in high-damage control mode over a group called Organizing for America (OFA).
The White House is strenuously denying that Organizing for Action, President Obama's former re-election campaign that morphed into a nonprofit group, is selling access to the president despite the group's own coy implications and his cooperation with it.
A leading Republican senator Sunday questioned the decision by President Obama to transform his 2012 campaign organization into a full-time advocacy group.
President Obama's campaign has transformed itself into a tax-exempt organization aimed at supporting his second-term agenda and countering a similar group that top Republican strategist Karl Rove has run during the last two election cycles.
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.
President Obama's campaign advisers said Monday he has a clear advantage in Iowa and Nevada as early voting in battleground states kicks into high gear, while Republican nominee Mitt Romney has an edge in Colorado, and the impact of early voting is less certain in Ohio and Florida.
With three months to go before Election Day, President Obama's campaign manager faced a fusillade of questions Wednesday about whether he deliberately skirted disclosure rules during his time as deputy White House chief of staff, undermining the administration's claim to be "the most transparent administration in history."
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will formally kick off his re-election campaign on May 5 with rallies in the swing states of Ohio and Virginia, Obama campaign officials announced Wednesday night.
With the president's re-election fundraising drive thus far coming up short of his record-breaking 2008 pace, Team Obama — with the president and first lady Michelle Obama in the lead — is pushing hard to pump up the money figures ahead of Saturday's financial-reporting deadline.
President Barack Obama's re-election campaign plans to release a 17-minute documentary next week about his first term in office.
President Obama's campaign manager accused Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney Wednesday of pandering to tea party members who harbor a "very personal dislike" of the president.
President Obama hauled in more than $68 million for his campaign and the Democratic Party during the final three months of 2011, a show of force that allows him to compete — for now at least — in the new reality of freewheeling outside political groups.
President Obama's campaign raised more than $70 million combined for his re-election and the Democratic Party during the summer, an amount that gives him a clear advantage over his Republican rivals but is less than his initial fundraising effort.
The campaign fundraising efforts of President Obama raised $86 million in the past three months from 500,000 people — but at least $35 million of it can be traced to just 244 well-connected supporters who collected contributions from wealthy friends.
In 2009, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina told Senate Democrats facing lively town hall meetings, "If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard."
campaign manager Jim Messina noted that Democrats registered about two-thirds of the new voters in 2007 and 2008 in states that allow for party registration.
