Organizing for America is teaming up with local Democrats as part of their effort to re-elect President Obama.
Members of the president’s campaign team will be working out of the local Democratic headquarters, located at 67555 E. Palm Canyon in Cathedral City.
An official kick-off event is slated for 1 p.m. Thursday.
Organizing for America plans to stay until the election.
Despite Republicans’ voter registration advantage, Obama won Riverside County in 2008 by taking 50.29 percent of the countywide vote.
