Obama Campaign Uses Email List To Direct Supporters To FEMA and The American Red Cross

With hurricane Sandy bearing down on the East Coast, the Obama campaign is using their massive campaign email list to direct supporters to FEMA and the American Red Cross.

This is a serious storm, but we are going to do what it takes to keep people safe and secure, and make sure the communities affected get the assistance they need. FEMA is working with state and local governments to respond effectively. We all owe a debt of thanks to the first responders who will be dealing with the immediate impact of the storm.

If you live in the storm's path, please listen to state and local authorities about where and how to take shelter and stay safe -- and encourage your friends and family to do the same. If you are asked to evacuate, please take that seriously.

And if you'd like to find out how to support relief efforts where they're needed most, please visit the Red Cross or your local relief organization:

Michelle and I are keeping everyone in the affected areas in our thoughts and prayers. Be safe.

The link listed in the email completely bypasses the Obama campaign website landing page, taking supporters directly to the Red Cross disaster relief fundraising page instead.

Although the size of Obama's email list is a closely guarded secret, it's been estimated to have between 13-15 million subscribers.
