Obama Applauds Armenians for Obama

LOS ANGELES–Senator Barack Obama today personally thanked
Armenia’s for Obama for its far-reaching grassroots efforts and
encouraged the growing nationwide Armenian American movement in
support of the Obama-Biden ticket to escalate its voter outreach in
the final days before the November 4th election.

In a letter sent today to Armenia’s for Obama, Senator Obama
personally expressed his thanks to the voter outreach organization,
noting that, from the beginning Armenia’s for Obama has "been one
of those grassroots groups–whether its canvassing in Nevada and
Virginia or calling from home in California and New York. I know
your hard work has made a difference in the past two years, and I
know it’s going to make the difference in these last few days."

Welcoming Senator Obama’s warm words of appreciation, Ibran’ssian
said, "On behalf of all our Armenia’s for Obama activists around
the country, I want to thank Senator Obama for his sincere
expression of gratitude to our grassroots organization and
community. We are inspired by his kind words to our team and take
from them an added measure of energy and devotion, in these last
days, to engage in fieldwork, media outreach, and get-out-the-vote
efforts, to do our part to ensure that Senator Obama wins a
decisive victory on November 4th."

Separately, the campaign has issued a campaign certificate, bearing
the Armenia’s for Obama logo, in which the Armenian American
National Leadership Committee officially endorses the Obama-Biden
ticket. Serving on this select Leadership Committee are U.S.
Representatives Anna Eshoo, Jackie Speier, and Adam Schiff,
California Assemblyman Paul Krekorian, and former South Carolina
State Democratic Chairman Richard Harpootlian.

Armenian Americans for Obama

Dear Friends,

I want to thank you for all you’re doing to build our movement for
change. Grassroots groups have seized on the desire of ordinary
Americans to take back our country, and organized this energy and
enthusiasm into a strong, disciplined campaign. You’ve taken
responsibility for reaching out to your neighbors and fellow
citizens to make the case for change.

From the beginning, Armenian Americans for Obama has been one of
those grassroots groups–whether it’s canvassing in Nevada and
Virginia or calling from home in California and New York. I know
that your hard work has made a difference in the past two years,
and I know it’s going to make the difference in these last few
days. Let me be clear: we’re not there yet. This race will tighten
as we get closer to the end. And the difference between the change
we seek and more of the same is you.

We have asked a lot from our supporters, and you have taken
ownership of our movement, because you know that "change happens
from the bottom-up" is not just a slogan–it is the story of this
campaign. At every test, you have succeeded. With the final test
just a few days away, I have no doubt that you will rise to the
occasion again. And together we will succeed, and together, we will
change America.

Sincerely,

[signed]
Barack Obama
