Obama Opens 5 More Va Offices

Tim Craig

Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign announced today it is opening five more offices across Virginia, meaning it will soon have 33 separate regional headquarters.

All but one of the new offices will be located in a fairly sparsely populated area, another sign that Obama is banking on winning over new voters through neighbor to neighbor organizing. The new offices will be located in Suffolk, a fast-growing suburb in southeastern Virginia; Tappahannock in the Northern Neck; Culpeper in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains; and Chase City and Farmville, both located in Southside.

Obama has now opened more offices in Virginia then he has in Pennsylvania, even though Pennsylvania has 5 million more residents. Obama's 33 Virginia offices rival the number he is planning to open in Ohio, which has long been considered the key battleground state in a presidential contest.
