Supporters of democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama filled the gym of Glendale High School in Springfield Wednesday. KSMU's Missy Shelton spoke with a few of them to find out what they thought about his speech.
The crowd welcomed Obama to Springfield by chanting his name.
Obama spoke to the Springfield audience about a variety of issues including gas prices, jobs, and healthcare. He also talked about social security.
That's a big issue for Jenny Gee of Springfield. She says Obama impressed her.
Even before the town hall meeting, Sandy Hart says she planned to vote for Obama...but she says her vote was about change, not about the candidate himself. But she says he won her over during his appearance in Springfield.
The crowd that gathered to hear Obama speak included people of different ages and races. Obama took questions from the audience and the first one came from a twelve year old. Another young person in the crowd was fifteen year old Kalie McGuire...even though she's too young to vote, she was still interested in hearing what he had to say.
Kalie McGuire says she plans to be an active supporter of Obama during the campaign season.
