"A timely project, help is appreciated"

Grant Lahmann, Washington State, Obama for America:
Hi All,

National has asked me to find 25 supporter housing beds for potential out of state volunteers and/or staff. We need a place for someone to sleep, rinse off in a shower and brush their teeth from as early as this coming SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 through the February 9 th caucus. These out of staters will be responsible for their own food, they just need a place to come in after a long night's work and rest. This is something we'd like to have 'in our back pocket' so we can be ready if this type of resource allocation is decided upon by the National Campaign, I don't have a guarantee that we have 25 people headed into the state on Sunday at this point. But working to be ready for that will definitely increase our chances of it happening.
