Updated at 4:30 p.m., Saturday. The Obama campaign initially sent the wrong address. It’s 513 East Main Street, not West Main Street.
The Obama For America campaign will open its third office in southwestern Virginia (if you include Roanoke in that region) on Saturday.
The new office will be at 513
West East Main Street in Radford.
It joins regional campaign offices in Roanoke and Blacksburg, as well as those in Lynchburg, Danville and Martinsville.
Campaign spokesman Dan Crawford wrote in an email, “The office will further expand the campaign’s grassroots operation in every corner of the commonwealth and serve as a community hub for local campaign activities, including phone banking, canvassing and voter registration.”
Certainly it appears the campaign continues to make a play for western Virginia.
And if you’re wondering just how far the new Obama campaign office is from Crumb & Get It Cookie Company, which famously declined an “unscheduled” campaign event with Vice President Joe Biden, it’s
1.3 0.9 miles, according to Google maps.
