Wyomingites can pursuade Montanans

The Montana primary is on June 3. By the looks of things, the Democratic Party presidential race will still be up for grabs. Gabe Cohen, one of the youngsters who ran the Obama campaign in Wyoming prior to our very successful caucuses, is directing the Obama effort in Montana. Here's part of an e-mail he sent out to like-minded people in the Rocky Mountain region:

As you read this message, there are Democratic ballots sitting on kitchen tables all across Montana.

That's right. Thousands of folks here in Montana have already received their absentee ballots in the mail, and they're thinking seriously about whose name to check.

You can make this decision easy -- and here's how.

Our team has put together a list of people here who recently received their absentee ballots. Your voice could persuade them to cast their votes for Barack and mail in their ballots today -- but only if you use our simple online tool right now and give them a call.

Get started making calls to absentee voters in Montana now at

Right now, we need your help to carry our momentum forward in Montana -- and with absentee ballots waiting to be filled out in homes from Billings to Kalispell, now's the perfect time to get involved.

You can make an especially big impact over the phone, because every single person you contact could vote for Barack today. And you'll feel the impact of your work immediately as the folks you talk to decide to mail in their ballots right away.

Even if you have never made a call for Barack before, you'll be able to make a difference just by logging in and calling a few voters at

Thanks, Gabe Cohen, Montana State Director, Obama for America

P.S. -- You can add even more to our campaign here by joining us in Montana in the coming weeks. Between now and election day -- and especially next weekend, May 17-18 -- seasoned veterans and first-time volunteers alike are traveling to neighborhoods all across Montana to talk to voters in person about why they support Barack.

This is the last contest in the country, and our last chance to make a difference for Barack during the primary season, so I hope you'll sign up to come lend a hand.

Might be a kick to travel up to Billings or Bozeman next weekend and knock on some Montana doors for Obama.
