It looks like it’s time for the Clinton fundraisers to jump on to “Unity Pony” and work together with the Obama team…
The Daily News reported today that “Hillary Clinton will join Barack Obama for a joint appearance in Washington next week to persuade her donors to begin giving to the Democrats’ nominee.” Hillary Clinton’s national finance director sent out an email today to top Clinton fundraisers “inviting them to the event on June 26” which will be held at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C..
“As we move forward, we invite you to join us for a National Finance Committee meeting with both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Thursday, June 26th in Washington, D.C., to discuss how we can work together to support Barack Obama and the Democratic Party,” Mantz wrote.
“Hillary ran for President because she wants to put this country on the right track,” Mantz wrote. “She continues to fight and stand strong for our values and priorities and will do everything she can to unify the party and to elect Barack Obama the next President of the United States.”
Mantz wrote in the email that the Clinton campaign is encouraging “supporters to contribute $2,300 to Obama’s campaign.” Hillary Clinton is also scheduled to hold a conference call with top donors on Thursday.
Like it or not the primaries are over and the Clinton camp is stepping up to do what we all knew she would do, support Obama. I can’t stress enough how fundamentally different McCain and Obama are and how important it is to get Obama elected in November. It really is time for a change. As a Clinton supporter, I’m proud to see Hillary jumping in with both feet to work together with Obama.
So… Let’s go Dem Daily readers… Pony Up for Change.
