The rumor mills are rather notorious for firing up in the days preceding an election, but this one’s too good to pass up: A source close to the Obama campaign in Kentucky told LEO today that Clinton will use her appearance tomorrow night in Louisville to officially concede the Democratic primary to Barack Obama. Bill and Chelsea are planning to be here, and the word is the Clinton camp has informed national media to send their big guns to cover a major announcement in the Ville. Clinton’s camp has denied it, of course.
We’ll be there tomorrow. Stay tuned. (SG)
UPDATE: There are so many satellite trucks and national news media around the Downtown Marriott that the city has closed the southbound portion of Second Street between Jefferson and Liberty streets to accommodate the crowd. The hotel is where Hillary Clinton will hold her “victory party” this evening.
UPDATE II: I got a call from the Obama campaign’s KY headquarters today. It appears this little rumor is getting some buzz, and they wanted to clarify that they are NOT the source of the rumor. There you have it.
