More than 300 hundred former Obama staffers signed an open letter penned by “Ready for Warren” urging Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
The letter, titled “We helped elect Barack Obama — now we’re calling on Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016,” highlights the parallels between Obama’s and Warren’s “unlikely” status leading up to the election, but says that they believe that the “improbable is far from impossible”:
We believed in an unlikely candidate who no one thought had a chance.
We worked for him — and against all odds, we won in Iowa.
We organized like no campaign had organized before — and won the Democratic primary.
We built a movement — and the country elected the first-ever African American president.
We know that the improbable is far from impossible.
Now, former staffers from President Obama’s campaigns, along with former staffers from OFA, are joining with the thousands of Americans who are calling on Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
Rising income inequality is the challenge of our times, and we want someone who will stand up for working families and take on the Wall Street banks and special interests that took down our economy.
We urge Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
Here’s the list of former Obama staffers who signed the letter.
