Virginia is a swing state.

Hello Make-A-Difference,

I hope you appreciate this incredible slide show that our local paper put together of the rally that Obama had in Richmond last week.

Thank you again for shipping the signs. They have gone all over the
Richmond metro area. I love the ones that ended up in Powhatan where I
teach dance on Tuesdays and I see signs that say things like “Powhatan is
McCain Country” We were able to access people who weren’t working directly with the Obama office here in Richmond. They were all impressed by the work you all are doing in reaching out to other states.

Your work is just one of the many examples I see over and over of people who are inspired to go the extra mile during this election. I once had a teacher who said that inspiration is a limitless source of energy.

I send my deepest gratitude for your efforts. They are not wasted.

Nevada: Key Swing State – Drive for Change

Swing State – Nevada is a swing state and Washoe County is key.

Click here: NPR Media Player All Things Considered, September 17, 2008 – Democrats have made big gains in voter registration in Nevada. Eric Herzik, professor of political science at the University of Nevada, Reno, says while Barack Obama may do well in Clark County, where Las Vegas is, to win the election, the race may come down to Washoe County, home to Reno.
