Obama Campaign Opens Regional Offices
Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Obama State Director Craig Schirmer and National Deputy Campaign Manager announced the opening of 18 regional campaign offices. Campaign representatives say Obama's work in the primary election will help him in Pennsylvania during the general election. Regarded as the second most important battleground state by Obama's campaign, volunteers and supporters will be trying to register the more than 1 million eligible but as-yet unregistered voters in the state. Rendell says once voters become familiar with Obama's personal story, they will be able to connect to his experiences and that will help the candidate to win the state in November.
