Barack Obama in Wilkes-Barre Friday?

I'm getting a handful of hits from this google search:

obama sept 5 wilkes-barre


It's probably nothing but if he is coming to town you heard it here first.


Update: I can't get confirmation of this but Obama will be in PA tomorrow.


Sen. Barack Obama will return to Pennsylvania tomorrow for two days of campaigning. On the same day that John McCain accepts the Republican nomination and gives his speech promising more of the same, Barack Obama will speak at Buchanan Park in Lancaster. The event is free and open to the public. He will outline his plans jump start our economy, provide middle class tax relief and get America moving in the right direction again.


Update 2: The TL is reporting Obama will be in the W-B area on Friday. Details to follow.
