“Stand For Change” Tour Takes Obama Across South Carolina Tomorrow

Obama Will Attend Primary Night Party in Columbia on Saturday Night

 

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Tomorrow, Sen. Obama will wrap up his statewide “Stand for Change” tour by campaigning from one end of South Carolina to the other before a late night rally on the campus of the University of South Carolina.  Since Sunday, Sen. Obama has spoken directly to voters in 12 different towns and cities in every region of South Carolina.  His statewide tour through communities large and small has highlighted Senator Obama’s ability to bring America together to focus on our common values and our common vision for bringing to Washington the kind of change we can believe in.
