O'Brien Campaign In Cedar Rapids
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) With Tuesdays Primary Election drawing close, voters got their chance to meet first district candidate, Dave OBrien at the Blue Strawberry in Cedar Rapids on Sunday.
OBrien says his strategy for his campaign has been based on solid research in which he found that most voters dont make up their minds on who theyll likely vote for until a few weeks before the vote.
He says thats why hes just now going door-to-door, something he says will make a big difference come Tuesday.
When I knock on a door, 50-percent of the people are saying I havent made up my mind, OBrien said. I said, well, Ive come to the right door. What questions can I answer for you to help you find that youd like to support me?
OBrien also says with five democrats competing for the first district nomination, that theres a good chance that choice will have to be made at the Democratic Convention.
To win the nomination on Tuesday, a candidate will need to finish with at least 35-percent of the vote.
