President Obama on Monday officially launched his campaign for a second term in the White House.
In a video message, entitled "It begins with us," a series of Obama supporters talk about the need for a second term for the incumbent Democrat.
The video features no new footage of Obama talking and makes no mention of Vice President Biden, though the website to which supporters are directed — a revamped BarackObama.com — has a small "Obama-Biden" logo at the bottom.
Obama addressed supporters in an email message accompanying the video.
"Today, we are filing papers to launch our 2012 campaign," he wrote. "[E]ven though I'm focused on the job you elected me to do, and the race may not reach full speed for a year or more, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today."
The new video is expected to be accompanied by a Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing some time on Monday, which would provide additional details about the campaign. Obama's public schedule, as of Monday morning, called for no public statements, though he could add some to his agenda. via thehill
