Members of the Press Travel with Senator Obama

Posted: Updated:

Senator Obama has a special plane for several members of the press who travel cross country with him.

We got a chance to talk to Lee Cowan on Sunday. He's the NBC Correspondent following the Obama campaign. He told us the traveling media follows Obama everywhere he goes.

He says a regular day usually starts at 6:00 a.m. and goes until midnight or 1:00 a.m. the next day. Cowan says the long hours are worth it, and these journalists have found a home away from home.

"That's kind of our life, we sit on the plane and we joke, that actually we don't really have a home we have a seat on his press plane and we sort of say that's actually our address now, I sit in 20-C, that's my life now that's my address," said Cowan.

Cowan told us he's been traveling with the Senator since Christmas day, and has been home five or six times since then. After the town hall meeting in Pendleton Sunday night, Obama along with the press were on their way to Montana.
