Update 9/22/08: Here are some photos sent in by the Twin Falls crew from their trip to Elko last week.
A group of 17 of us from Twin Falls, and eight others from Minidoka and Sun Valley volunteered at Obama’s rally in Elko, Nevada, on September 17. We carpooled to Elko on Tuesday night, then were at the the city park by 8 a.m. Obama had incorporated his economic plans into this speech, and my favorite line as quoted by Slate “questioned whether McCain could make good on his challenge to take on the "old boys' network." With so many former lobbyists in his campaign, said Obama, "the old boys' network is what they call a staff meeting.”
Here’s the good news about Twin Falls County Democrats: I had an email from Kassie Cerami (Idaho Obama organizer) on Sunday saying Idaho had been asked for twenty volunteers. I didn’t understand until Monday at noon that all twenty were being asked for from Twin Falls. We managed to find 25 volunteers by the time we left Tuesday night. I especially want to thank the LaRocco campaign for letting us take Matt Kopydlowski and all of you who rearranged your life to take part in the Obama campaign.
