April Primary Wrap-up

By M Davies   /     Apr 24, 2008  /     Misc/Crap  /  

The other day in my post entitled "T Minus 2 Days and Counting" I was questioning the amount of Political Related visits Hillary and Barrack made to NEPA. As I had guessed, I thought that Hillary and the Clintons made more political stops in NEPA then Barrack did, and according to the below article published in Yesterday’s Wilkes-barre Citizens Voice, I was indeed correct.

Monday, March 10: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks at Scranton High School during her first campaign appearance in the area. Before the rally, she stops for pizza at Revello’s Cafe in Old Forge.

Tuesday, March 11: Chelsea Clinton helps open her mother’s campaign headquarters at the Ritz Theatre Building in Scranton.

Wednesday, March 12: Chelsea Clinton visits Wilkes University to campaign for her mother, answering questions from the audience about Sen. Clinton’s campaign and plans if elected.

Saturday, March 15: Clinton marches in Scrantonís St. Patrickís Day parade.

Monday, March 17: Sen. Barack Obama makes his first area campaign stop on St. Patrickís Day, meeting with the Society of Irish Women during its annual dinner at the Radisson Hotel in Scranton and participating in a roundtable discussion, sponsored by MTV, at Whistles Pub & Eatery.

Wednesday, March 19: President Bill Clinton speaks at Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre.

Friday, March 28: Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey Jr. endorses Obama.

Tuesday, April 1: Hillary Clinton speaks to more than 3,000 people at a "Solutions for the Pennsylvania Economy" event at Kingís College in Wilkes-Barre.

Tuesday, April 1: Barack Obama makes his first stop in Wilkes-Barre, speaking for 68 minutes at the Marts Center at Wilkes University.

Wednesday, April 2: President Clinton visits with several hundred supporters at a campaign party at Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty’s home. The event raises $250,000 for Hillary Clintonís campaign.

Thursday, April 3: Hugh Rodham, Hillary Clinton’s brother, tells about 40 farmers in Meshoppen that he heard their concerns about dairy pricing and would take their plight to his sister if she is elected.

Saturday, April 19: President Clinton speaks at a "Solutions for America" rally at Wilkes University’s Marts Center in Wilkes-Barre.

Sunday, April 20: Obama speaks to a crowd of about 2,000 people at Riverfront Sports Complex in Scranton.

Monday, April 21: Hillary Clinton speaks to about 1,000 people at the Scranton Cultural Center for the final time before the primary, emphasizing her local ties and why she would be a better president.


Final Toll of NEPA Appearances
Clintons: 10
Obama: 4

**I think there are some appearances missing from this list for some reason, so I’m not sure of the accuracy….Like for example, Obama’s appearance at the Glider Diner in Scranton is absent from the list. If you want to check out more information about that appearance, check out John Webster’s blog.

Ok, now enough with the election.  Please take down the signs and stop talking about it.  I don’t want to hear about it again until its time for the Democratic nominations.
