New Tampa Bay Obama offices



The Barack Obama campaign is set to formally open a Clearwater campaign office - 133 N Fort Harrison Ave - tomorrow afternoon, and a St. Pete field office - 2321 Central Ave (super convenient to  the only spot we know of where naked, deaf guys dangle from the ceiling) - Wednesday afternoon. That brings to four the number of field offices in Tampa Bay, and by our count, 13 in Florida: Those two in Pinellas; two in Tampa; one in Sarasota; Hollywood; Homestead; Naples; Fort Lauderdale; Gainesville; Miami Gardens; Fort Myers; Jacksonville.

John McCain/RPOF have about 30 offices statewide, including ; Tallahassee Pensacola, Chipley; Jacksonville; Inverness; Spring Hill; Brooksville; Ocala; Lady Lake; Orlando; Kissimmee; Melbourne; Brandon; two in Tampa; Bradenton; Hudson; St. Petersburg; Clearwater; Lakeland; Sarasota;  Pompano Beach; Port Charlotte; Naples; Boca Raton; Jupiter; West Palm Beach.

"Barack Obama is committed to the state of Florida and we continue to open offices statewide as we assemble the largest campaign team Florida has ever seen," Florida State Director Steve Schale said. "We want to hear from Florida's communities and give our grassroots volunteers the support they need to bring change we can believe in to Florida."
