The Obama bus was created by Leah Landrum Taylor, who is the State Senator of Phoenix. Leah says that she heard McCain say on T.V. that Arizona is "his turf" and that he basically has it in the bag. She got so disgusted by him that she dreamed up
"The Obama bus". She relies completely on donations and gets no money from the campaign. She is determined to show McCain that Arizona his not "his" turf, it's OUR turf. She dreamed up the bus 5 weeks ago, and since then has taken it to all but two counties in Arizona, and over 50 towns. Leah rocks!
She and I hit it off big-time, and she called me her "soul sister". She recognized that I did a similar thing with the Hillcar, and said the Hillcar "made her day".
She has a few devoted helpers on board. Like this lady, who says she hasn't gotten any sleep in weeks. She says pure adrenaline and excitement for what they are doing in keeping her going.
I followed the caravan from Bisbee to Douglas, and took this picture while passing the bus.
At the Bisbee rally, Mark and Highwell made the scene. I think Mark should be here-in called 'Obama boy".
Some of our own H.C.A. was at the Bisbee rally as well.
The Bisbee rally
The Douglas rally was really sweet.
But my Donkey-ear hats off goes to Leah, who's excitement and vision is, I think, single-handedly bringing up Obama's numbers in Arizona.
We are now only 2 points behind. Keep it going, Leah and we're sure to beat McCain in his home state!
