Oklahoma volunteers opened an Oklahoma City office Tuesday night for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
Obama's national campaign also plans to eventually open an office, said Terry Thompson of rural Logan County.
"There's been so much enthusiasm about this candidate not only from lifelong Democrats, but from people who are new to the political process,” Thompson said.
Thompson and Susan McCann of Edmond will staff the volunteers' office, 4001 Classen Blvd., Suite 117, on Tuesdays in July. They will increase the number of days the office is open each month leading up to the Nov. 4 general election.
Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois, had an office in Oklahoma City before the state's presidential primary earlier this year.
What are McCain's plans?
U.S. Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has no immediate plans to open an Oklahoma campaign office, a co-chairman of his Oklahoma campaign said Tuesday.
McCain's campaign is coordinating activities through the state and county Republican Party offices, said state Rep. Trebor Worthen, co-chairman of McCain's Oklahoma campaign.
The campaign could decide later to open up a separate office, said Worthen, R-Oklahoma City.
