Democratic HQ officially opens

Dozens of people turned out August 30 for the official opening of the Lexington-Rockbridge County Democratic headquarters (221 South Main) for the 2012 election campaign.

They heard from local Obama campaign field organizer Albert Karcher and had a chance to volunteer for campaign activities on behalf of Obama-Biden, US Senate candidate Tim Kaine and Sixth District Congressional candidate Andy Schmookler.

If you would like to volunteer or pick up campaign materials, come by the headquarters or call 540-464-3367.
