Clinton Recruiting Her Backers To Help Obama

By  | 

Minneapolis (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton is working to whip up support for her former rival for the nomination.

The New York Senator is inviting her primary-season supporters to get involved directly in Barack Obama's campaign and donate to it. The outreach, dubbed “Hillary sent me,” also urges them to travel to a specific battleground state each weekend.

Remarks provided to the Associated Press in advance of an afternoon conference call quote Clinton as calling on supporters “to stand up, hit the road and spread the word.”

Clinton has so far campaigned for Obama in Ohio, Florida, Nevada and New Mexico and raised about 5 million dollars for his campaign.
