He'll Be Here Soon!

Share |

That's right! Mr. Obama will be coming to the lovely city of Charlotte in just two days! I know a sea of folks will be trying to get a glimpse of this fella, but if I'm not working, I may have to brave the crowd to get a peek.

I can't wait to vote in the North Carolina primary on May 6! Who knew that our vote would weigh so heavily in the process?

This is where he'll be this Wednesday:
Grady Cole Center
310 N. Kings Drive
Charlotte, NC 28204

Doors Open: 1:30 p.m.

Obama campaign confirms Charlotte visit
The Associated Press
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will bring his Democratic presidential campaign to North Carolina this week.

A statement issued by the Obama campaign on Sunday said he would be making stops in Charlotte and Fayetteville on Wednesday.

No further details were available on Obama's visit.

The fight for delegates between Obama and New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has made North Carolina's primary a crucial stop in the 2008 presidential campaign. North Carolina and Indiana have primaries on May 6, two weeks after Pennsylvania.

I think this election is gaining more media, and people involvement than any other campaign in history, at least in my lifetime!
This is certainly history in the makings!

It is indeed HISTORY. I'm very excited about it and I'm sure there's so much more involvement in the process because it's just a stimulating race.

I came by to see how it went.

Regina,
I found out that it was an "by invitation only" event, so I didn't even try to go. Besides, I figured it would have gone on late and I have to pick up my daughter everyday from the After school program! (A mother's work is never done. :-)
But I hope you caught some of it on TV as I did.
Peace,
Alicia
