|April 28, 2012--It is still 192
days until Election Day, November 6, but the Obama campaign is hard at
work in Northern Virginia, an area critical to its prospects in this
key state. Volunteers gathered at the campaign's recently opened
office on Columbia
Pike in Arlington for a "day of action." Their objective, said
regional field director Aaron Rosenberg, was to "flood the Pike."
After hearing from several speakers including U.S. Sen. Mark Warner
(D-VA), volunteers headed out to high traffic areas along this major
thoroughfare to update registrations of people who, for example, have
moved, as well as to register new voters. Obama for America
Operation Vote national
director Michael Blake estimated that a total of about 1,500 people
were participating in similar actions around the state as part of the
"day of action."
