SURGE OF INTEREST PROPELS COBB CAMPAIGN MOMENTUM
The Cobb-LaMarche Green Party presidential campaign is on a roll.
"There's a real sense of momentum and excitement and traffic on our website is increasing exponentially," said campaign spokesman Blair Bobier.
Bobier credited the upswing to the extensive media coverage the campaign has seen recently, the hard work of volunteers and staff and the natural cycles of campaigns.
Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb recently appeared on the PBS program NOW with Bill Moyers and was featured in The Nation magazine in an article by author William Greider. C-SPAN also televised two of the alternative debates in which Cobb participated; NPR covered one of the debates, at Cornell University, and also separately profiled Cobb. Cobb also published an op ed in the Boston Globe on October 14 and will appear tonight on the CNBC John McEnroe show.
The John McEnroe show airs tonight on CNBC at 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. EST.
