WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 /U.S. Newswire/ -- As anticipation grows about General Wesley Clark joining the race for the presidency, Draft Clark 2004 will rally supporters at hundreds of MeetUps across the country tonight. At the same time, Gen. Clark will address "Draft Clark" volunteers in a taped message to be aired at meetings across the country.
"We are preparing for the General to enter the presidential race in the coming days," said Jason McIntosh, a national coordinator of DraftClark2004.net. "The success of the Clark 2004 MeetUps is an indication of the depth of support that has been generated for General Clark. We will be a strong base of support once he enters the race."
The videotaped message from General Clark to the draft movement will be featured at nearly 200 MeetUps to be held tonight across the United States and will be available on DraftClark2004.net. Draft Clark 2004 has 166 regional coordinators in all 50 states. Draft Clark 2004 also has a field office in New Hampshire.
"We are seeing history being made," said Michael K. Frisby, communications director for DraftClark2004.com. "A grassroots organization is reshaping the political landscape by nudging General Clark into the presidential race."
Last week, Draft Clark 2004 delivered 20,137 petitions to General Wesley Clark urging him to throw his hat into the presidential race. General Clark was presented with a CD-ROM mounted on a plaque, symbolizing Draft Clark 2004's use of technology and the Internet to energize and mobilize voters to support the General.
