From the mouth of John Kerry directly to your computer screen

I just received this email from John Kerry:

Hello Ryan,

The race to change our country is at a fever pitch right now heading into Super Tuesday — and Washington state is right in the middle of the fight to choose the Democratic standard bearer who can make that change possible. The caucuses in the state on Saturday February 9th will be part of the week that may decide our party’s nominee for President. I’m coming out because Washington is a special place to me – I still remember those caucuses which sent me on my way to the nomination, and I want to see Washington do the same for Barack Obama.

I’ll be there tomorrow for a couple of events on Friday to talk about my support for Barack Obama. At 9:30, I’ll be in Seattle at a town hall meeting at the HUB Auditorium of the University of Washington. Doors open at 9, and the event is free and open to the public. If you can make it, try to RSVP at

And then, just before 4 in the afternoon, I’ll be in Tacoma at the Tacoma City Association of Colored Women Club, which is at 2316 S Yakima. Doors open at 3:30 and, again, it’s free and open to the public.

The energy around the Barack Obama campaign is just amazing to watch. The polls are moving, the race is tightening, and Washington can play a big role in the choice of our next President.

If you don’t live near enough to come out to our events tomorrow – or if you can’t make it for some other reason – you can still get involved in the campaign. Visit and find out more.

Thank you very much, and I hope to see you tomorrow.

John Kerry

No, thank you, John Kerry. Thank you.

Niki Sullivan of the Tacoma News Tribune’s blog Political Buzz talked with Kerry about his upcoming visit [tnt-pb].

As an aside, has anyone else noticed how damned good the TNT is? Have they always been awesome or is this a recent development? They seem to be striking a perfect balance between irreverent blogs and solid news journalism and I can’t keep myself from reading everything they write.

    TNT’s been a good newspaper for as long as I remember…I think I’ve been reading it for about a decade.

    TNT has always been great. They’ve really figured out the interplay between blogs and standard content – especially the Sports section.

    On the Obama front, I’m in the 32nd District (Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore) and we’re having a volunteer organizing event tomorrow (2/2). We’ll be handing out campaign materials, canvassing, making phone calls, and answering questions. If you live on the north-end and would like to help, here’s a link to the event:
