Century of the Common Iowan: Daschle Campaigns for Obama in Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) was in Iowa this weekend campaigning for Barack Obama. Daschle spoke at the openings of Obama campaign offices in Spencer and Algona and also stopped in Spirit Lake. Daschle first endorsed Obama back in February. From KTIV in Sioux City... Daschle says "I'm backin' Obama because I believe strongly we need someone with real integrity and he's got it because I agree with him on the issues on Iraq, on health-care, on education, on climate change, and because I think he can inspire the next generation. He's already shown me he can do that and we need that more than anything right now." I am not sure how well thought of Daschle is in Northwest Iowa, but if he is then he could be a real asset for Obama. Obama can have Daschle working NW Iowa and Dick Durbin working Eastern Iowa. Those are some big name surrogates to have working the state come caucus time.
