Romney For President Announces Rally For Romney

PRESS RELEASE

Boston, MA - Today, Romney for President announced the launch of "Rally for Romney," a new nationwide grassroots fundraising initiative designed to mobilize and empower volunteers across the country to build support at the grassroots level.

The goal of Rally for Romney is to empower grassroots activists nationwide to reach out to friends and family that are not yet supporting Governor Romney's campaign and turn them into active supporters.

Rally for Romney recruitment begins today in more than 40 cities, in 20 states, culminating with rallies and Call Days in those cities and states at the end of September.

Rally for Romney eliminates the high-dollar attendance barrier of typical fundraising events and gives supporters the ability to come together and form a "fundraising team." The team will set a fundraising goal and work together to meet the goal before the Rally in their city. Recruitment for team captains and team members begin today.

Romney for President Finance Director Spencer Zwick said, "Rally for Romney will help us continue to raise the resources we need to compete nationwide, and it also gives people the opportunity to show their support of Governor Romney and his message of conservative change in Washington."

Romney for President Political Director Carl Forti said, "The launch of Rally for Romney is just the latest effort that Governor Romney's campaign has undertaken to mobilize and energize supporters in new and innovative ways. Rally for Romney will help us reach out to more voters and engage them in Governor Romney's campaign at a grassroots level."
