Idahoans took the political world by storm in February by packing Boise's largest sports arena for a pre-dawn speech by Barack Obama. Three days later, we did it again by giving Obama the biggest margin of victory from any primary or caucus state. Now, Idahoans for Obama are getting set to make history again as we reopen Obama for America's Boise office. The new digs are downtown in the Jefferson Place building on the southeast corner of 9th and Jefferson Streets.
Idaho last voted for a Democrat for president in 1964, and we know it will take a lot of hard work to help Obama prevail here. But the fact is: Idahoans don't want a third George W. Bush term, which is what we'd get with a John McCain presidency. Like the rest of the nation, we are ready for a visionary, forward-thinking president who can bring people together across party lines to start solving our nation's most pressing problems, including sustainable energy; a strong economy for everyone; affordable and accessible health care insurance; and real national security based on leadership, not fear-mongering. Idahoans know: Barack Obama is that president.
Join us from 5 to 7:30 p.m. this Thursday, August 21, as we open the new HQ. Food and drink will be served, courtesy Lisa Peterson Catering.
