OBAMA HELP NEEDED IN NEW MEXICO

If you live anywhere near New Mexico (or can get their relatively cheaply) please do your best to volunteer. This is a state that can go with Obama but it needs volunteer help now. Please contact your nearest OBAMA campaign headquarters....I mean really, what else do you have to do this weekend?

We are Valencia County, NM residents and our whole family has been volunteering for Obama's Campaign for Change. My mother and husband have spent many days and hours canvassing in Los Lunas, and I have spent hours on the phones. Just in case you needed some incentive to know it does make a difference I wanted to share this story. Yesterday, the last day of early voting my mother and her canvassing partner came across a household with three registered voters who could not get to the polls at all because of car trouble. They drove these three people to the polls and they voted for Obama. Afterwards, they needed to stop at the campaign office on the way back to bringing them home. The place was hopping, and many good folks had brought in a variety of potluck dishes to feed hungry volunteers bused in from California and Texas. These three people who just voted joined in the office excitement and ate well. On the way home they mentioned to my mother that they were grateful for the food, as they were hungry, had no food in the house, and no car. They were proud to have had the opportunity to vote, and very grateful for everything. So, it really does matter, every little bit.
