Group Vows Half-Million Supporters Will Back Hillary in General Election

Organization cites surging membership and closeness of previous elections in their promise to impact '08 elections

June 4, 2008 -- HillaryGrassrootsCampaign.com, an organization with upwards of half-a-million supporters, announced today it is committed to breaking ranks with the Democratic Party and supporting Senator Hillary Clinton in the general election - regardless of her status as the party's nominee.

HillaryGrassrootsCampaign.com is not associated with the official Hillary Clinton campaign. However, the organization says it is filled with disaffected supporters who are ready to be "former" Democrats because of the contempt and disregard that has been shown to the many party faithful who support Sen. Clinton's presidential candidacy.

"We've already registered more than half-a-million supporters and our numbers are growing daily," said Robin Carlson, HillaryGrassrootsCampaign.com's campaign representative. "The treatment from the Democratic Party and the media of this historic candidate has energized voters across our nation," Carlson added. "To throw that support away with such contempt and disregard would be a huge mistake."
