6000 In Ames, Iowa for Obama

Over 6000 people attended a rally for Barack Obama this morning, at the Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. Because of the massive demand, the event had to be moved from the Beyer Gymnasium to the Hilton Coliseum.

Obama continued his push to bring the troops home from Iraq, and also spoke on health care, education and energy.

Barack Obama also secured the support today of two key Iowan Democrats, Attorney General Tom Miller and State Treasurer Mike Fitzgerald. They are supporting Obama despite having served under former Governor and Democratic nominee, Tom Vilsack.
