Fairgoers can watch panel discussions, calculate their taxes for the Obama vs. Romney plans, and share why they are a fan of the President
St. Paul, Minn -- Tomorrow, Thursday, August 23rd, President Obama’s grassroots campaign will kick-off its programming at the Minnesota State Fair, launching a series of interactive activities each day including discussions with elected officials, community leaders and supporters at the DFL Pavilion on the corner of Dan Patch and Cooper.
This year’s theme is Forward, On a Stick. Fairgoers from around the state can stop by the OFA table to pick up a handheld fan and share why they are a fan of the President. They will be able to take their picture with a life-size cut-out and use their social networks to discuss why they stand with the Obama-Biden team. And they will be able to use the online Tax Calculator to compare the impact to their families under the respective tax plans and see who is really fighting for the middle class.
