Ben LaBolt currently serves as the Press Secretary for the 2012 Obama re-election campaign. Prior to joining the re-election, he worked on Rahm Emanuel’s successful run for Mayor of Chicago as the communications director.
In 2008, LaBolt acted as deputy press secretary for the Obama presidential campaign and worked in the White House under Robert Gibbs as one of President Obama’s press aides. He served previously as press secretary to then-Senator Barack Obama.
The Federal Election Commission has released President Obama’s Re-Election 4th quarter 2011 contribution efforts at $68 million. Ben Labolt will give us a campaign update and outline the contrasts between President Obama’s and Mitt Romney’s economic plans.
Labolt shared with me during our interview that 98% of contributions to President Obama’s Re-election campaign was $250 or less from citizens. His campaign does not accept money from Washington lobbyist, special interest groups and political action committees. So far, 103 million Americans have contributed to the Obama Re-election Campaign.
LaBolt makes the contrast between President Obama’s and Mitt Romney’s economic plans. President Obama’s plan wants to restore economic security for the middleclass while Romney’s plan wants more tax breaks for large corporations and the upperclass. LaBolt says the upperclass wants to write its on rules while the middleclass plays by the rules.
