On Wednesday, Senator John McCain is coming to downtown Portland for a campaign fundraiser. While the press waits and watches to see if anyone actually shows up to support his faltering campaign (besides his good pal Gordon Smith), the Veterans in Action will be protesting outside -- and you're invited to join 'em.
From the Multnomah County Democrats:
Veterans in Action is going to be holding a protest supported by the DPO on Wednesday, August 1st when John McCain, Gordon Smith's choice for president, comes to Portland for a fundraiser. This is the second joint Veterans in Action/DPO protest targeting Smith.
The McCain/Smith fundraiser is at 1 p.m. at the Heathman Hotel (1001 SW Broadway, Portland). The protest starts at 11:40 a.m. outside.
Just two weeks ago, Gordon Smith was still standing by the war-mongering presidential candidate.
