Earlier this week more than 81% of voting MoveOn members opted to support an effort to encourage Elizabeth Warren to run for President citing her continuous efforts to fix a rigged political and economic system that is failing America’s families.
MoveOn’s Run Warren Run campaign website and launch video at RunWarrenRun.org focused on the Massachusetts Senator, who has become known as a tireless, passionate advocate for giving all Americans a fighting chance in an economy rigged in favor of big banks and corporate interests. MoveOn, which has pledged more than $1 million for the launch of the effort, plans to include a robust field operation with a national team-based organizing strategy inspired by President Obama’s powerhouse grassroots campaign. The Run Warren Run campaign will hire staff in early caucus and primary states including Iowa and New Hampshire, and MoveOn members across the nation will engage in high-visibility social, cultural, and online actions, and partner with key organizations and constituencies to highlight the groundswell of support for Warren.
