I know this isn’t an Orange County story, but I think it’s still something we should know. This morning in Rochester, New Hampshire, a man walked into the local Hillary Clinton campaign office and immediately took two volunteers hostage. He’s saying that he has a bomb duct-taped to his body, and he’s demanding to speak with Hillary Clinton. The Manchester Union Leader has more on this breaking news.
Senator Clinton was scheduled to speak at the DNC winter meeting in Washington, DC, but DNC Chair Howard Dean recently announced that she will not be speaking due to the hostage crisis in New Hampshire. Meanwhile back in Rochester, both Barack Obama’s and John Edwards’ campaign offices in town have been evacuated and the entire area around Hillary Clinton’s campaign office has been shut down. Obama’s and Edwards’ campaign staffers are all OK, and and nearby schools are keeping students inside.
Please stay tuned here at The Liberal OC for more as this very saddening story continues to develop. We’ll update you as soon as we find out more. All our thoughts and prayers are with Hillary’s campaign team in New Hampshire, and we hope everyone will be OK.
