The president earlier today tweeted a message on his campaign account @BarackObama: “The time for putting party first is over. If you want to see a bipartisan #compromise, let Congress know. Call. Email. Tweet. —BO”
(You can tell it’s “from him” because he signed it.)
That was followed by Obama 2012 staffers tweeting:
“You heard the President. So here's what we're doing: throughout the day we'll post the Twitter handles of GOP lawmakers in each state.”
“Tweet at your Republican legislators and urge them to support a bipartisan compromise to the debt crisis.”
Presumably the Obama campaign is going in some kind of alphabetical order (ish) by state since staffers began with Alaska and have moved on to Alabama.
“Alaska voters: Tweet @lisamurkowski and ask her to compromise on a balanced deficit solution.
“Live in AK? Have a Republican representative? Tweet them and ask them to support a bipartisan compromise to deficit reduction.
“AK Republican rep on Twitter: @repdonyoung”…
The campaign’s digital team is spear-heading the campaign.
