Romney/Obama volunteers hard at work connecting with voters

MILWAUKEE -- As the Democratic National Convention continued Wednesday, September 5th -- on the eve of President Barack Obama's address to the Convention, volunteers on both sides of the aisle were hard at work making calls to voters -- asking for support for their candidate.

Volunteers with different points of view share an important role in advance of the 2012 presidential election -- connecting with voters by phone, and getting them to the polls.

Democrats like Nathaniel Smith volunteer to reach out to voters.

"I'm a student with UWM and I'm with Students Working for Barack Obama," Smith said.

At a Republican volunteer center Wednesday, Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch stopped by to help motivate volunteers.

"Wisconsin will go red on November 6th. We will win for Romney/Ryan," Kleefisch said.

Over 60 days remain of calling and courting voters.

"We have such a robust get out the vote apparatus," Kleefisch said.

"I wouldn't look at it as a machine. It's a straight-up grassroots campaign. We connect with the people," one volunteer said.

The Republican National Convention in Tampa wrapped up last Thursday, August 30th when Mitt Romney accepted the presidential nomination.
