An initiative in Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign is targeting college campuses and students.
Obama for America, the president’s official national re-election campaign, is seeking to create chapters of its Greater Together Initiative on University campuses.
The initiative seeks to provide awareness of the impact the election will have on students nationwide, said Stephanie Cutter, the initiative’s deputy campaign manager.
Cutter conducted a national conference call Wednesday, the same day of Obama’s visit to Arizona, to inform university campus media outlets about both the Republican Party’s nomination bids and the impact of Obama’s presidency.
The Republican nomination has been leaning toward former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and Cutter used the conference call as an opportunity to highlight the differences between Obama and his possible opponent on taxes and economic policy.
