Barack Obama may visit Boise. According to the campaign website, Raul Alvillar, Obama's Western political director, "is making a personal visit to Boise to see for himself just how many supporters Obama has here in Idaho. If we all attend and show our support is strong, we have a GREAT chance of bringing Obama to Idaho! This event carries the utmost significance and may be the only time we get a chance to show the Obama campaign how much we want Barack to visit Idaho."
The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. next Monday, August 6, at Pengilly's in downtown Boise. Considering that about 100 people attended the local Obama kickoff last spring, the venue could prove way too small. If you'd like to attend, you can sign up here.
Update: Obama is slated to be in Elko, Nevada, this weekend, either Friday or Saturday. More here.
