Obama Staffers Hit The Ground in Virginia
Several staffers for Barack Obama's presidential campaign arrived in Richmond yesterday to head up his effort to win the Feb. 12 primary.
Kevin Griffis, who worked for the Virginia Democratic Party during the 2005 governor's race, walked around the state capitol this afternoon letting the press know the Obama campaign is in town.
Griffis will be joined in by Mike McCauley and Stacey Brayboy. All three were transferred from South Carolina, where they helped Obama rack up a 28-point victory over Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY).
Brayboy will lead Obama's effort in Virginia. In South Carolina, Brayboy served as Obama's state director. In a column earlier this week, the Washingtonpost.com's Chris Cillizza praised Brayboy's skill at organizing voters.
McCauley, who worked for Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass) in Virginia in 2004, will be doing political outreach for Obama in Virginia. Griffis will serve as communications director.
The Obama campaign will be opening up a Virginia headquarters in the 800 block of N. Hamilton Street in Richmond.
