Supporters of the policies of President Barack Obama knocked on doors in Louisville and Lexington over the weekend, as part of the “Moving America Forward” canvass to  "support Democratic allies for President Obama."

Presumably, that includes candidates for federal office, Jack Conway and John Yarmuth.  Though Yarmuth is an unapologetic supporter of the national Democratic agenda, Conway is stressing how he differs from the Obama administration more than he stresses how he agrees.

According to a release from Organizing for America-Kentucky (OFA-KY), volunteers are reaching out "to 2008 first time voters, sporadic voters, and newly registered voters to talk to them about the importance of electing Democratic allies for President Obama who will keep the country moving in the right direction."

 As President Obama has made clear in recent weeks, this election represents a choice between Democrats who have worked tirelessly to move the country forward or a return to the failed Republican policies that set the country in the wrong direction. Since taking office, President Obama and Congressional Democrats have passed historic reforms to the health insurance industry and Wall Street, and pulled the American economy back from the brink of depression.
