From The Politicker:
The Obama campaign announced this morning that they will launch a new crowd-sourced initiative, to in their words, “promote the President’s achievements, respond to attacks on his record and hold the eventual Republican nominee accountable.”
…This campaign will be a state-by-state effort and will be powered by some of the president’s union allies in National Education Association, the Service Employees International Union, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union and the United Steelworkers Union.
From Politics K-12:
The president’s spending blueprint also includes:
• A $60 billion infusion to help states weather the economic downturn. That would include $30 billion to help prevent teacher layoffs. (Congress just last year already roundly rejected the teachers’ jobs proposal.) It also would include $30 billion for school facilities.
