Barack Obama’s Lexington campaign office opened yesterday. From the Herald-Leader:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign opened its second office in Kentucky Monday with a pep rally at its new Lexington headquarters that drew 400 "fired-up" supporters.
That pretty much sums up what happened except for listing the notables that were there.
"It's the real leaders who can get folks to do the right thing," said state Sen. Ernesto Scorsone of Lexington. "That's what Barack Obama can do for this country."
Also there in support of Obama were state Rep. Ruth Ann Palumbo, D-Lexington; Lexington Vice Mayor Jim Gray; state Finance and Administration Cabinet Secretary Jonathan Miller; and former Lexington Mayor Pam Miller.
I might also add the media coverage was pretty good for a manufactured event. WKYT had a crew there. Of course Ryan Alessi from the Herald-Leader was there. The blogger corp. was represented by me and my daughter Jessica and bloggers Media Czech and Ben Ray.
I did have my one question answered during the rally.
Why in the world would you put the Lexington Obama headquarters across the street from Stan Lee’s district?
The answer, it was free. The owners according the Fayette County PVA are William C. and Laura Bartley.
