Former CIA Agent, Valerie Plame and her husband Ambassador Joe Wilson rallied for democratic candidates including President Barrack Obama, Stephanie Garcia Richard, Kristin Henderson, Michael Redando, Pete Sheehey and Nathan Hjelm today, Nov. 4 at Democratic Headquarters in Central Park Square.
Some 75 supporters turned out to listen to Plame and Wilson speak about the importance of voting in the Nov. 6 general election.
The high profile couple touched on foreign policy, Hurricane Sandy disaster response, and the importance of citizens participating in the democratic process.
Wilson told the crowd that the couple were missing their son's state soccer tournament in Santa Fe because they felt it was so important to speak to the voters of Los Alamos as the election is just two days away.
Following Plame and Wilson's visit, local democrats fanned out to knock on doors and work the phone banks in support of the local democratic candidates.Valerie Plame, House Dist. 43 candidate Stephanie Garcia Richard and Ambassador Joe Wilson pose for photos at the Democratic Headquarters on Sunday.
