Can Boren and Henry Get Obama to OK?
Ivan Holmes, chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party, says Gov. Brad Henry and OU President David Boren are “really serious about helping” Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.
Holmes said he had a conversation with Boren recently about what could be done in Oklahoma to help Obama win a state that hasn’t been carried by a Democratic presidential candidate since 1964 (LBJ).
Holmes said he thinks Boren and Henry will try to get Obama to visit Oklahoma shortly after the Democratic National Convention in Denver at the end of August.
He said he thinks Boren is envisioning an Obama rally at OU that would bring out a lot of young people who could register to vote on site.
Boren and Henry both endorsed Obama, of Illinois, in the midst of his his heated primary with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, of New York. Boren, a former U.S. senator who once headed the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now serving as one of Obama’s foreign policy advisors.
