I Get To See Barack Speak Friday!

I found out last night that Barack will be in Elko this Friday, while I'm going to be there. So, I emailed Brad, a friend of mine who is interning in Elko, and got the scoop. We volunteers will all get to see Barack speak, and will probably be helping with the event. Yay! I'm so excited!

He also says that I can expect a lot of time going door to door, so I should bring warm clothes and gloves. I think I'll bring some hand and feet warmers.

I'm staying at the hotel across the street from Elko HQ, and I'm told it's a decent place to stay. If you're going out and would prefer to stay at the hotel, it's the Esquire and the phone number is 775.738.3157. The one bed rooms are $39.

There will be a lot to do in Elko, and helping Barack win Nevada will greatly increase the momentum already going. There's not a lot of time left, and that means "Now or Never!" - and like Barack says "Our time is now!"

If you haven't signed up to volunteer in Elko this week, and want to, call Aaron at 801.886.2262.

    That is really awesome! Tell Barack that even in Utah there are believers and supporters.

  2. He already knows! Even before the rally in August, I heard him praise Utah for being so active. But, if I do get a chance to speak to him, I'll make sure and tell him again! :)

  3. Very cool!

    When I saw him in Vegas last year 'round this time there were wing-nut protesters at the event shouting "cut and run", etc. Obama pulls up in this very non-descript mini-van, and runs right over to the protesters, shakes all of their hands. They were completely silent and respectful after that as he came across the parking lot to shake all of our hands. It was very funny to see.

    I don't really know why I just told that story.

    Anyway, I hope you have a great time.
