Organizing for America, the post-election reincarnation of the Obama presidential campaign's massive grassroots organizing arm, will hand over some 642,000 signed pledges to congressional offices today in support of President Obama's budget, which has been taking heat from Republicans and some moderate Democrats.

The 11 a.m. press conference was scheduled Wednesday morning, just an hour after Republicans on the Hill introduced the second version of their alternative budget.

Here's a video released by the DNC on the pledges. More details as they come in.
