Ryan stumps for Obama

Four years ago, one of the 2008 presidential race’s big battleground states was North Carolina, which President Obama carried by the narrowest of margins. That does not appear to be the case in 2012, so the campaigns are shifting attention to other swing states still up for grabs — including get-out-the-vote events with celebrity endorsers. Bruce Springsteen will be covering Ohio; and Monday night in Colorado (which the FiveThirtyEight polling site rates as a dead heat with Obama clinging to a razor-thin lead), Ryan Adams will play a show for Obama in my former hometown of Boulder. Somebody go, and report back!

ADDENDUM (10/31/12): Show review.  And another.

    I’m actually crazy enough that I looked up flights to Boulder from SF… turns out it’s a little too much $, even for someone who has flown across the country for shows before. Looks like it’ll be fun though, and I’m glad to see Ryan using his celebrity for a good cause.
