Dueling Economic Events
The candidates for president both have events today in Richmond to remind voters how important they think the commonwealth is. Sen. John McCain will have a group of local state reps tout his economic plan while Sen. Barack Obama has sent another red-state governor, Kathleen Sebelius from Kansas to town, to talk about the economy as well. She will hold a roundtable discussion on “four critical issues affecting American families.”
If you are interested, I enclosed the information for both events after the jump.
Four Families, Four Issues
Roundtables with Gov. Sebelius
This Tuesday, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius will hold a “Four Families, Four Issues, for the Change We Need” roundtable discussion with families in Richmond and Williamsburg. Governor Sebelius will meet with families who are struggling with four crucial issues that are affecting hundreds of thousands of Virginians in this economic downturn.
Governor Sebelius will directly discuss Barack’s proposals to jump start the economy, fix our education system, make universal health care affordable, and provide immediate relief for distressed homeowners and communities.
