Obama launches new group to push his agenda

President Barack Obama, who will be sworn in for a second term Sunday, will transform what's left of his re-election campaign into a new political organization to advocate his agenda over the next four years.

Obama for America will become Organizing for Action, a non-profit, tax-exempt group, that will try to build support for the president's fiscal priorities as well as gun control and an immigration overhaul.

"Following in the footsteps of the campaign you built, Organizing for Action will be an unparalleled force in American politics," Obama said in an email to supporters. "It will work to turn our shared values into legislative action -- and it'll empower the next generation of leaders in our movement."
