Kaine, Others Campaign for Obama This Weekend

Anita Kumar

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine will host a "Change We Need" town hall Saturday in Abingdon to tout Sen. Barack Obama's vision for changing Washington.

In his seventh town hall meeting for Obama, Kaine will highlight the Illinois senator's plans for energy independence, middle class tax relief and job creation, among other topics.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former National Security Adviser Richard Clarke and California Rep. Jane Harman also will hold a series of town halls for Obama this weekend.

They will discuss Obama's plans to rebuild international cooperation, decrease the risk of terrorism by rooting out al Qaeda, attack global poverty and increase military personnel.

Town halls will be held in Fairfax, Newport News, Richmond, Charlottesville and Fredericksburg on Saturday and in Winchester and Harrisonburg on Sunday.

I liked you article today on how campaign contributions have risen due to VA being a tossup state. You probably know this, but another things that been going on is, because MD and DC are pretty much locked up for Obama, a lot of Obama supporters from those states, are coming to VA to campaign for him. Yesterday, a friend of ours and her family (who live in DC) spent 2 hours on Sunday, by themselves going door to door in Virginia. I live in Silver Spring, and plan on spending some time in early October working a phone bank in VA.

Also, a lot of people are making a big deal about the Palin bump, but whats not been reported is that backlash from Palin. Both my friend and I have never gotten involved in an election, but Palin has scared us so much that we've decided to both get involved.
