Democrats are bringing a prominent politician to Sandusky next week to rally the troops behind Barack Obama.
New Mexico's Democratic governor, Bill Richardson, will speak at a rally from 12:45-1:45 p.m. Monday at the UAW 913 hall, 3114 S. Hayes. Everyone is welcome to attend, said Amy Grubbe, chairwoman of the Erie County Democratic Party.
Richardson himself was a Democratic candidate for president. He later endorsed Obama.
"He will be speaking to the group and also taking questions," Grubbe said. "We're very excited to be hosting Gov. Richardson and looking forward to having him speak on behalf of the Obama and Biden campaign for change. We're really looking forward to having him here in Erie County."
UPDATE 10/22: The above has been changed to reflect that the rally site has been moved from the Democratic Party headquarters to the UAW union hall in Perkins Township. The new location provides shelter in case of rain and provides more parking.
