Disclosure: I am taking time off from school to work for Hillary Clinton's campaign.
After precinct caucus trainings this morning led by former TDP Exec. Director Nancy Willaims and an event with United Farm Workers President Dolores Huerta just beginning as I write this, the Hillary Clinton headquarters in south Austin had logged in over 1100 volunteers today.
In her speech, Huerta cited Clinton's experience registering voters in South Texas in the early 1970s and said she "is no Johnny-Come Lately" to the issues that are important to Texans.
As Travis County Commissioner Margaret Gomez said in her endorsement statement today, "My constituents and I are standing with Hillary because she has stood for us. That won't change when she gets to the White House."
There's a lot of excitement here growing for President Clinton's visit tonight. Parking may be hard to come by. If you come down tonight be sure to say hello.
And for you Ugly Betty fans, actress America Ferrera will be holding several Austin events in support of Senator Clinton, including a 1pm rally tomorrow at Joe's Bar & Grill at 6th St & West.
