Attention Democrats reluctant to support the President's agenda on gun control and other issues: President Obama's new grassroots organization is about turn the heat up on you.
Powered by a grassroots army of some 20 million activists and millions of dollars in unlimited contributions, the newly reincarnated Obama campaign will now push the White House's policy agenda - even when that means putting pressure on fellow Democrats to support the President's initiatives.
"Our job is to help the president pass some major pieces of legislation to get some things done for this country, which are common sense and that people can understand," former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina told ABC News. "And that means we're going to talk to members of both parties about why these things are important."
