Let me tell you from personal experience - I've never ever seen a grassroots effort in Arizona for anything whatsoever like I've seen for Obama. There are so many events, voter registration drives, debate watching parties, phone banks and canvassing efforts going on here over the next few weeks that you have to pick and choose between them because there's no way to attend even half of them - you'd literally have to be in 5 places at one time some days.

I'm going to a street-side rally today and will bring back photos - we already have 30 to line the streets today and are continuing this effort tomorrow and next weekend too (Oct. 6th is the last day to register to vote here).

And, last night over 250 sat outside to watch the debate the the Arizona Obama office. While that may not seem like a big deal to a lot of you, please remember that it's still in the low 100's here in Phoenix, so to brave the heat, you gotta be dedicated.



There were also many, many other debate watching parties all over Arizona.

I'm not saying it's a sure thing - it will be a struggle and we all need to fight as hard as we can to make it happen. But it's definitely possible, and that speaks volumes for Barack Obama.
