I got a text message from Alex Beck who works in the Admissions Office last Friday night…”Barack Obama is at American Dream Downtown right now!” Not wanting to miss the opportunity to see a presidential candidate in town I jumped into the car and raced down to “The Dream”. Sure enough…I was greeted by a caravan of buses and police cars blocking off 2nd street.
After waiting for about fifteen minutes Senator Obama emerged from American Dream to applause and cheers. After shaking hands around the entrance he pushed his way towards the group I was standing in a little further down the street. I had the opportunity to take a couple great shots.
Pretty cool of the Obama Campaign to make a stop in Corvallis! That’s all for now, don’t forget to comment.
