Obama HQs Run Out of Gear, Come Back Later, They Say

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

If you were planning to head over to one of the local Obama offices to purchase some gear such as buttons, T-shirts and stickers before partying it up in style tonight or to commemorate what could be a historic moment for America, they are all sold out.... Well, if you want one of those big foam hands with a peace sign, then you can get that. But not to fear, they say after 3:30 p.m., Obama gear should be restocked for any and all celebrations tonight. Represent!
