Video: Obama Office Opens in Prince William
LAKE RIDGE, Va. — Democrats in Prince William County have a new rallying place.
Campaign staffers for President Barack Obama on Saturday greeted about 100 supporters for the opening of Obama’s latest reelection campaign office, at Tacketts Mill in Lake Ridge.
The new office is one of 10 campaign bureaus in Virginia. In addition to the office in Lake Ridge, campaign officials also opened offices in Loudoun County and in Virginia Beach over the weekend.
The office will primarily be used for campaign activities such as making phone calls, and rallying and training volunteers who will go door-to-door canvassing for votes.
Obama in 2008 won Virginia with 52 percent of the vote. In Prince William County, voters chose Obama over John McCain giving the president 57 percent of the vote.
