Washington (CNN) – The pro-Obama group Organizing for Action Tuesday will begin running digital banner ads urging internet users to send House Speaker John Boehner a message telling him to end the federal government shutdown.
The group tells CNN ads will run most prominently on the homepage of the Washington Post, taking over both the top and sides of the newspaper's website. Featuring a picture of Boehner leaning against a large circuit-breaker switch in the off position, the ads urge viewers to add their name to OFA's "Enough Already" campaign.
"John Boehner caved to the Tea Party and shut down the government," the ads read. "Tell the Tea Party: Enough Already."
Clicking on the ad will direct people to BarackObama.com/enough-already, where they can sign up for the OFA's email list and donate to the group in support of ending the government shutdown.
Earlier Monday OFA, the political organization that evolved out of President Obama's re-election campaign, began running its second TV ad attacking congressional Republicans for shutting down the government. The spot, which the group says will run for a week on national cable TV, features clips of House Republicans, in cable new interviews, seemingly celebrating the effects of the government shutdown.
In addition to paying to get its message out, OFA has also organized events and social media campaigns meant to put pressure on Republicans to heed the president's call to reopen the government by passing a clean continuing resolution. House Republicans have insisted that any bill to fund the government be accompanied by changes to the president's signature health care law, the Affordable Care Act.
