Obama Campaign Looking At East Texas

Barack Obama's camp also began forming in East Texas. Twelve members of Obama's staff have made East Texas home for the next three weeks.

A group of those staffers met with local volunteers to discuss their plan of action. They plan on setting up phone banks in the near future to reach each East Texas voter. There is no official word yet if obama is going to come to East Texas, but the state of Texas is on the horizon.

"We don't know exactly when or where. We know he will probably be in North Texas but East Texas we don't know because he is covering more states than Hillary is right now. His schedule is a little more condensed," said Cecily Luft, volunteer, Barack Obama 08.

Another meeting of supporters will be held Friday night in Longview at the Community Center at 7 p.m.
