Recap: Howard Dean in Shreveport
We had a great turnout at the stadium behind Galilee Baptist Church for Howard Dean's stop in Shreveport as part of the nationwide Register for Change tour! Dean readily expressed his gratitude and enthusiasm for the number of people in attendance.
Obama supporters met and talked with Dean, listened to him speak about the 50-state strategy and how volunteers are going to win this campaign, shared signs and stickers, discussed future meetings, and took home canvassing packets to start door-to-door voter registration in Shreveport neighborhoods. Details to follow, but for now, enjoy the photos and please share your own!
The Shreveport Times has wonderful photos of Howard Dean and Obama supporters in this gallery.
Maysa Kaskas also took photos of the event, like the one above and the two below, all of which can be seen here at Flickr. I started a Flickr account solely for this blog, so anyone with any related Obama event photos, send them in!
Centenary College Democrats President Nadine Kaskas wrote about the event over at the KSCL blog.
The wonderful Shreveport Faces blog featured us, as well.
Thanks to everyone who came out today, it was great to see you!
