Obama Support in the Sunshine State

January 8th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

As New Hampshire voters cast the first primary ballots, supporters of Barack Obama here in Florida say the Illinois Senator and Democratic Front runner is doing so well because he offers hope. State Senator Tony Hill is supporting Obama and expects the new face to win New Hampshire and Florida.  “Independents are getting on board. People really believe that this guy can change and make a difference” says Hill. ” I think with the coalition he has built around this country, over 500,000 people have contributed. That’s unheard of, that’s a movement within itself. And I think now, the weave of that momentum is moving him forward.”

Hill says Democrats by penalizing Florida for moving its primary to January 29th. The early date is the first time in Decades that Florida is being watched by the rest of the nation when it comes to picking a party nominee.
