President Obama woos 'Hoos-- all the pix
The last time President Barack Obama was in Charlottesville in 2010, he was here to lend a hand to Congressman Tom Perriello's ultimately unsuccessful reelection bid. This time, he was here to boost his own reelection chance. And thousands filled the nTelos Pavilion August 29 in a sea of orange, white, and blue.
The visit was part of a three-campus swing to get out the youth vote. Orange-clad UVA students were plucked from the crowd to sit on the dais behind Obama, and three took the stage to introduce him, including volunteer Mathias Wondwosen.
