Barack Obama was at the Alaska Democratic Convention in Palmer….if only in spirit. Below is a recorded message that played at the convention. The fact that he had this message well thought out and ready to go once more shows that his roots as a community organizer will take him far. The Obama campaign is polished and thinking of details. He diplomatically thanks Patti Higgins, Democratic Party Chair and staunch Hillary supporter, refers to Mark Begich as the next senator from Alaska, and says he’s confident that either Ethan Berkowitz or Diane Benson will be the next Alaskan member of the House. Berkowitz has been getting lots of coverage lately, so it’s good he acknowledged it’s still a two person race. Enjoy!
