Norfolk State Sends Off President Obama to DNC
Norfolk State University welcomed a crowd of more than 11,000 to see President Barack Obama at his final campaign stop before heading to the Democratic National Convention. From the Daily Press:
Students chanted “four more years,” and waved smart phones over their heads trying to snap a picture of the president as he took the stage.
Near the end of his speech he made a direct appeal to the college-age attendees in the crowd.
“We’ve got a lot more young people to send to college, we’ve got more teachers we’ve gotta hire, and more middle schools we’ve got to build,” he said.
“We’ve got more doors of opportunity we need to open up.”
