Clinton + Obama's hunt for votes intensifies


PROVIDENCE, RI – The Obama campaign announced today that Senator Edward M. Kennedy will travel to Rhode Island to campaign for Barack Obama tomorrow, Friday February 29th. Congressman Patrick Kennedy and Attorney General Lynch will join Senator Kennedy as he makes stops around Rhode Island to discuss why he believes Senator Obama has the judgment and character to bring about change we can believe in.


Senator Kennedy and his son Congressman Patrick Kennedy will visit with seniors at the Woonsocket Senior Center, and share Senator Obama’s plans to protect Social Security, strengthen retirement savings, and his universal health care plan.


Later in the afternoon, Senator Ted Kennedy, Congressman Patrick Kennedy and Attorney General Patrick Lynch will hold a “Get Out the Vote” rally at the University of Rhode Island’s Feinstein Providence Campus. At the rally, Senator Kennedy, Congressman Kennedy, and Attorney General Lynch will encourage supporters to work hard to “get out the vote” for Barack Obama during the final days before the March 4th primary.


The Clinton team, by releasing this lengthy list, is trying to enhance its appeal to the coveted Latino vote:

“With Hillary Clinton as president, Latinos know we will have a leader who understands our community and our needs,” said Andy Andujar. “Latinos are concerned about the availability of jobs, access to funding for our businesses and a plan for comprehensive immigration reform. Hillary Clinton has the experience and foresight to make significant changes in America and we will work tirelessly to ensure she is our next president.”

In Rhode Island, we're seeing ongoing appeals to key blocs -- women, the elderly, Latinos, working class voters -- as Clinton and Obama vie for a win here on March 4.

The Hillary campaign today unveiled a new TV commercial, portraying her as a tough fighter for the middle class. You can view it here. The big guy is in town, too.

The Obama campaign today has Linc Chafee, Charles Fogarty, and Patrick Lynch doing a statewide tour of senior centers and meeting with local legislators. Latino supporters are also hosting a GOTV meeting on Providence's South Side. Earlier this week, the campaign passed a milestone, having attacted donations from more than one million people.

Yesterday, the Clinton team staged a "Women for Hillary" event, featuring former Maryland LG Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, LG Elizabeth Roberts, Teresa Paiva Weed, former Senate GOP leader Lila Sapinsley, and Suzanne Magaziner of Bristol. "Women for Obama" hosted a phonebank in Cranston, also yesterday. Team O has also released details on some additional house parties:
