Norton to Rally D.C. Obama Supporters Saturday
Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton's office said she will join Barack Obama supporters from D.C. at a rally Saturday at 1 p.m. in the parking lot at the Democratic National Committee, at 430 South Capitol Street, S.E. The rally will bring together groups that are canvassing in Virginia, which is consider a key swing state between the Democrat Obama and Republican John McCain.
In a statement, Norton warned about overconfidence.
"Obama should be much further ahead than he is, considering the almost unprecedented unpopularity of Bush's eight years and the economic crisis hitting every group of Americans," Norton said. "We are in danger of believing our own press clips and polls before the vote is in."
