Obama supporting group cuts staffing, fundraising

FILE - This Nov. 4, 2013 file photo shows President Barack Obama speaks at an Organizing for Action event in Washington. Organizing for Action, the nonprofit group supporting President Barack Obama’s agenda, is scaling back its fundraising efforts and cutting its paid staff in half as focus shifts to the looming midterm elections, three Democratic officials said. Formed last year from the remnants of Obama’s vaunted re-election campaign, OFA raised more than $30 million in its first 15 months as it worked across the U.S. to build support for Obama priorities like health care, immigration and climate change. But the group’s aggressive courting of big-dollar donors has vexed many Democrats who worry the group is siphoning sorely needed dollars from Democratic campaigns just as the party is bracing for a difficult midterm election.
