Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Just Announced- Obama Coming to Dallas Wednesday February 20

Just Announced- Obama Coming to Dallas Wednesday February 20

It has just been announced that Barack Obama will be making a stop in Dallas on Wednesday before his debate with Hillary Clinton on Thursday in Austin.  The place has not been announced.  I guess that's too small of a detail to have that when you make such an announcement, but I'll update this post when I hear.http://survivingglobalization.blogspot.com/2008/01/obama.html

From The Dallas Morning News, " "Sen. Obama is committed to campaigning in communities across Texas and will ask the people of Texas to stand for change with him," Adrian Saenz, the Obama campaign's Texas state director, said in a prepared statement Saturday. "

The primary in Texas is March 4.  We're one of the last states to vote.  The state is typically Republican on a whole, so I'll be watching very closely to see if people vote party lines and for issues, or if they vote for just a person.

Clinton has made no announcement of a stop in Dallas.

I've never attended an Election Rally before.  That might be fun.  I'll have to check back for the location.

Just announced....Obama's rally will be at Reunion Arena at noon. Doors open at 10:30am.  I think Obama would be interesting to see. 

And, Huckabee will be in Plano on Wednesday night at Collin College.

It is fun to have the presidential candidates in Dallas!

I agree with Linda. I think it would be a very interesting experience to see Senator Obama in person.

Linda, thanks for posting the update.  I can't believe they scheduled it so last minute. I'm sick so I can't go, darnit.  Not that I'm voting for him, but I thought it might be fun to see what all the fuss is about.

Donna, I had heard on the radio this morning it was Reunion Arena, but haven't seen that confirmed in print or online yet. Linda above in the comments said the same thing.
