On October 29, 2007, more than four thousand people braved the cool night and paid $29 to cram into Charlottesville’s Downtown Pavilion to listen to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. The Illinois Senator spent about 50 minutes talking to the crowd on issues ranging from health insurance, the Iraq War, and education. He was introduced by Governor Tim Kaine, a fellow graduate of Harvard Law.

In this case, the audio is not totally complete, and this is the notice of that piece of information. This was done for purely technical reasons.

The Virginia Sentinal has the story, as does The Hook. For more coverage, Mandy Owen and Helena Cobban both attended as well and have reports on their sites.

Update: As noted below in the comments, C-Ville Weekly also has coverage.

  7. Seems pretty interesting, looks like Obama’s got his work cut out for himself.

    While I’m here, I was also looking at the weekly democratic nominee polls, and it’s almost amazing how Barack Obama came from a 28% deficit to taking the lead over Hilary Clinton just weeks before the democratic caucus.

    What do you think of that?
