Obama to Meet With Veterans in Billings

By Beacon Staff

HELENA – When Barack Obama comes to Billings on Wednesday, he will be hosting a town hall meeting with an invited group of veterans and military families.

The visit is Obama’s final stop as he makes his way to the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Obama is set to accept his party’s nomination on Thursday night.

Obama has visited Montana four times since his campaign began. His last visit came on the Fourth of July, when he attended a parade and picnic in Butte.

Obama has been focusing on Montana, hoping to win a state that has been a solid backer of Republican presidential candidates.

Republican John McCain has yet to campaign this year in Montana.
