Cutter: We Will Activate the Campaign Network to Take on the NRA

Posted: Jan 17, 2013 7:08 PM

We haven’t seen much of Stephanie Cutter since the election but she recently appeared on MSNBC’s The Ed Show to let everyone know that the Obama campaign network will be activated very soon to take on the NRA.

STEPHANIE CUTTER: President Obama provides the leadership here, and he said the American people have to speak up and make their voices heard in this debate. Just like the NRA is doing with their membership. And President Obama's network across this country, grassroots individuals, who organize, volunteered with their time to get the president reelected are much more powerful than the NRA lobby.

And I think that you can expect to see that network activated, very soon. And for good reason. We need to pass commonsense legislation to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and those who shouldn't be carrying guns. That's the commonsense nature of this.

It’s already begun. Today, Katie posted about Obama’s top campaign adviser Jim Messina sending out an email to supporters asking for gun control support. We also heard from Cutter when she sent out the frantic “fiscal cliff” email that urged supporters to share their story about what $2,000 a year means to them. The truth is, the 2012 Obama campaign never really ended. Messina’s email today is just the beginning.
