Vote Hope

Hiring email

Vote Hope, a group with a PAC and 527, founded by Steve Phillips, emailed January 22, 2008 with a help-wanted, announcing that they're "fired up to win California for Obama!" The email suggests that the organizing will be done through another group of which Steve Phillips, son-in-law of the Democratic mega-donors Herb Sandler and Marion Sandler, is president, PowerPAC.
