The Obama campaign is using txt msg technology right now to organize the audience. They have an interactive screen map of txt msg participation of audience by hometown. Make the star on ur home state grow by txting “obama” then make 6 calls to friends tonight and enter a raffle to get floor seats. The stars on the map are growing- another example of youth focused grassroots approach of the campaign.

Hi this is Martin. My Congressional Rep spoke minutes ago about the Latino vote and the situation 4 immigrants in the US. My community wants 2 know what is being done now about raids and the families affected by them. What about the border, DREAM Act, and the tarnished image of the immigrant worker.

Colorado gov Bill Ritter must have partied a little too hard last night – his voice was absolutely gone during his speech (Nice)

Other observations from martin and Clare: Luis Gutierrez rep from Illinois just spoke and urged Latinos 2 get behind Obama. It’s the first time we’ve heard any politician directly talk about immigration. The issue seems to be largely untouched by democrat speakers
