Group tries to bring Obama supporters into party



Last we saw Jim Piccillo of Land O'Lakes, he was introducing Joe Biden as John McCain.

But now he's back, leading Club Change of Pasco County, an effort to bring more of Obama's volunteers and supporters in to work with the Democratic Party, starting with, a Web site. The first event was delivering donations of clothing and other items to Sunrise of Pasco County today. So far there are 53 members.

"I kept bugging them about what was coming next after the election," Piccillo said. "We basically built this thing from the ground up."
