Politically Speaking: Obama event in Denison, Thompson tomorrow
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
Apparently Barack Obama is churning up interest to spur strong attendance at events he isn't even attending. The U.S. senator from Illinois pursuing the Democratic Party nomination for president has slated an organizational meeting tonight at Cronk's restaurant in Denison. Obama drew more than 500 people in Denison on a March 31 stop at the high school, and 65 people are anticipated to attend the 7 p.m. meeting at Cronk's. Obama and his Iowa spokesman said having such a turnout for planning meeting in the middle of the week so far out from the November 2008 election is indicative of great support, and they're right. In other presidential candidate news in Northwest Iowa, if you get up early tomorrow you can attend the 7:30 a.m. stop by Republican Tommy Thompson at the Village Inn on Hamilton Boulevard in Sioux City. After that, the former Wisconsin governor will attend events in Le Mars, which we plan to cover, and Sioux Center and Rock Rapids.
