For all the media in town, and for all the locals who want to show their support for a progressive future for America (which is our only hope at this point, honestly), thought I'd pass along the following item.
OXFORD (Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2008) – Mississippi Democrats will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, to highlight how Republican presidential nominee John McCain’s stand on the Iraq war has cost us at home.Please do show up. With all of the lowlife tactics being used in the run-up to the debate (specifically, trying to eliminate any visible sign of the - quite substantial, I should add - support for Obama that exists here in Oxford as the national media descends upon the town), it sure would be helpful to have every Obama supporter in town show up and show the world they're here.
The news conference will be on the east side of the Oxford Square next to Oxford City Hall, 107 Courthouse Square.
Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Franks will lead the news conference and talk about how McCain’s policies threaten to further harm an economy already in turmoil. Other Democratic Party leaders are expected to attend.
