Obama Plans Illinois Events « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
RALEIGH, N.C.–And now some bad news for those eagerly awaiting Sen. Barack Obama’s running-mate announcement. Today the Obama campaign said that the junior senator from Illinois and presumed Democratic nominee will hold an event at the state capital on Saturday, the same location where the senator announced his candidacy for president in February 2007. Meant as a "kick-off" to the Democratic convention in Denver, this follows a trip to Chicago beginning Thursday afternoon and lasting through Friday. Yours truly will do his best to cover both events from, um, Las Vegas where I will be attending my annual Fantasy Football League draft, which was a nightmare of errors last season. I am nothing but dedicated to my work. And football. And losing money at blackjack.
