Obama Opens Campaign Office in NYC

9 10 2007

And let the turf war begin.

Presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama of Illnois, has just opened a New York campaign headquarters in lower Manhattan, The Daily News reported yesterday. While Obama certainly has raised millions of dollars in New York City, Hillary Clinton leads him in many national polls, and in the recent 47 – 15 percent among Democratic primary voters, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll. But the Obama campaign does not realistically believe they can carry Empire State away from Madam Inevitable. The campaign wants a piece of New York’s delegates.

The New York Observer explains:

But even without a realistic chance at winning the primary in New York, there are plenty of reasons for the Obama campaign to invest time and resources here. Not only is New York still the nation’s preeminent source of political contributions, but it’s also a potential wellspring of detachable Democratic delegates. New York’s primary is on Feb. 5, and Democrats divide their 151 delegates proportionally. If the primaries in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina don’t yield a clear winner—and the Obama campaign has no choice but to operate on the assumption that they won’t—then a good chunk of New York’s delegates are likely to be in play.
