With such a large portion of our readers being from Minnesota, I thought it would be pertinent to announce that Barack Obama will be at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul this Tuesday, June 3rd for his victory speech after the last of the Democratic primaries, Montana and South Dakota. The speech will most likely mark the beginning of the general election and will be symbolic because it will be in the same venue as the Republican National Convention which will be held from September 1-4th. Sen. Obama’s choice of Minnesota as the host for his victory speech shows just how important our 10 electoral votes will be as a swing state in the general election. Doors are at 7 with the Senator speaking around 9:30-10. The event will be free and seating is first come, first serve.
