New Strategy

Obama Camp Combats Voter ID Laws

Obama strategists are hard at work figuring out how to take on the voter ID laws that will be enacted by several states, such as Wisconsin, Florida, and Ohio before November. Though those in favor of the identification requirements say they prevent voter fraud, the Obama campaign notes that they make registration more of a production and recruiting new voters much harder. "We are not allowing laws that are challenging and put in our way to stop us from doing what we need to do," said Obama's field director.
