Divided We Fail to Ramp Up Efforts in Delaware Leading up to Super Tuesday
Date:2/1/2008

WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Divided We Fail volunteers from across Delaware will be increasing efforts in advance of Tuesday's Presidential Primary to press candidates and elected officials to make access to quality, affordable health care and long-term financial security top issues in the national political debate.

Divided We Fail brings together groups representing big business, small business, labor and consumers to call for action and answers from our national leaders. Volunteers in all of the primary states will be asking the candidates to provide details about their plans to fix our nation's health care crisis and ensure all Americans have access to a secure financial future.

"Divided We Fail has been a force in the early primary states, and we're going to continue to press the candidates for solutions right through the general election in November," said AARP State Director Lucretia Young. "The early exit polls are crystal clear: health care and financial security are two of the top issues in this country right now. Divided We Fail is here to ensure the candidates continue to respond to the questions Americans are demanding be answered."

Divided We Fail volunteers, wearing their signature red shirts, will be educating voters at the following election-related events. The media is invited to attend:
