Be Careful: It has come to our attention that there have been Robo calls to Democrats encouraging them to cross-over vote for Rick Santorum. This strategy has not necessarily been endorsed by the Michigan Democratic Party, Washtenaw Dems or the Ann Arbor Democratic Party. Cross-over voting is an individual decision. These calls give the impression that it is a Democratic strategy or effort to let Mitt Romney know we are not happy with his assaults on working people. We should not reward the “Rick Santorum for President Committee” for trying to manipulate Democrats in this manner.
The Ann Arbor office of Obama for America is presenting a series of forums on issues important to the voters. Forums are held every other Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the OFA office at 455 W. Eisenhower, Suite 65 (near the Olive Garden). Materials for these forums will be posted here.
