Sebelius to Launch Michigan Women for Obama Tuesday

There is a temptation here to read tea leaves... well, never mind that for now. We will know soon enough. Tuesday, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius will join Stabenow, Dingell and Bell here in our state to discuss Obama's platform on "family issues".

Barack Obama’s Michigan Campaign for Change today announced that Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius will be traveling to Michigan this Tuesday, August 19th, to launch Michigan Women for Obama and to hold a town hall meeting with women from across Michigan to discuss issues facing Michigan’s women and their families. Governor Sebelius will be joined by Former Wayne County Commissioner Edna Bell and DNC Member Debbie Dingell for the announcement.

Governor Sebelius will also be joined by United States Senator Debbie Stabenow in a town hall meeting where they will discuss Senator Obama’s commitment to the issues that matter to women and families, including affordable health care, economic security, and equal pay.

No Granholm? Seems odd. Might have previous engagement.

More details as they become available.

UPDATE: Press conference is tomorrow at 10:45 am, town hall will be held at 11:25 am, Macomb Community College, John Lewis Center, K Building, Room 301. Stabenow and Sebelius will be present for the town hall. (No Dingell? She is worth the trip alone.)

Tuesday night, Michigan Women for Obama will hold house parties across the state, and there will be conference call availability with Stabenow and Granholm.

And there you have it.
