This Place is Packed

It's 5:30 and packed in here. The crowd is chanting "we want John". I've talked with Tim Cairl, Dale Cardwell, Amy Elliott, and more. Gov. Barnes just walked in to do the introduction.

Barnes says everyone in America is for Elizabeth.

John and Elizabeth are here, and she's talking about the poverty tour.

"We have the opportunity to elect a President who believes in each and every one of us," said Elizabeth.

Now John is talking about his health care agenda and James Lowe who lived with a cleft pallete for 50 years. " We need a President who will stand up with them against the powerful insurance companies and drug companies."

"We don't need to replace their Washington insiders with our Washington insiders. Let's take the government away from all of them and give it back to the American people. "

He has issued a challenge today, as he did last night, for the other candidates to join him in a commitment to raise the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour.
