Obama Supporters Out in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Supporters of Barack Obama were out in force Friday in Richland.

While Eastern Washington is known as a predominently conservative part of the state, local Obama supporters were confident in their choice for the next U.S. President. 

Young and old gathered at the Richland Community Center, looking to make sure voters make their voice heard in Saturday's caucus. Supporters were encouraged to lend their time to call others, to make sure more people get involved. 

And, many supporters say Barack's policy on Iraq is what has them excited about his candidacy.

Kennewick Ed Frost says, "The highest priority for me is to end this war and Obama is the only candidate left that will end the war."

First-time Presidential Voter Lucas Anderson says, "Barack thinks about what he says and doesn't act on emotion like other senators when he voted for the Iraq war."
