Presidential Nominees Barack Obama and John McCain Celebrate the 4th of July

July 4, 2008

Presidential nominees Barack Obama and John McCain celebrate the Fourth of July holiday on the campaign trail.

Barack Obama and his family are celebrating the Fourth of July in Butte, Montana. It's a state that usually gives its three electoral votes to a Republican. Only two Democrats have carried Montana since 1948. Republicans typically do not feel the need to campaign hard in the state, and Democrats usually have little hope of winning the state. But this year, Obama is spending a sizeable amount of time and money to try to win Montana.

After his trip to Colombia and Mexico, John McCain is back home in Arizona for the holiday. He's planning to spend the Fourth of July holiday at the family compound outside Sedona, with no campaign events on his schedule for the next few days.

The McCain Website hopes you have a "safe and happy 4th of July" and asks that you remember the troops.
