WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Political season is in full swing. As President Barack Obama gets into to full re-election campaign mode, some local supporters opened their campaign doors in Wilmington.
Organizing for America North Carolina hosted a grand opening at its office on Wrightsville Avenue tonight. The event welcomed volunteers and highlighted the president’s plans if he is indeed re-elected. Political science major at UNCW, Carter Jewell, volunteers her time for a campaign she believes in.
“It’s important to me because I’m a student. I’ve seen what the president for young people as well as for Americans, “ Jewell said. “He’s done a lot for people my age. It’s really important for me to come out and be thankful for all that he has done.”
With today’s grand opening, Organizing for America North Carolina now has five offices across the state.
Event leaders say the volunteers are what really drive the organization.
