Nevada Candidates Forum Sold Out

The candidates forum to be held in Carson City, Nevada next Wednesday has been sold out. The event will be held at the Carson Community Centre, but a second satellite site that will watch the forum by feed, has also been sold out.

Mike Gravel will join other candidates such as Hillary Clinton and John Edwards to speak and answer questions. Barack Obama has decided not to attend the forum, choosing instead to campaign in Iowa. The forum is sponsored by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees will be moderated by ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

This will again be a good chance for Gravel to put his case for his run for the Democratic nomination. It's never easy getting coverage when you are not considered a front runner, so as the year progresses, these type of events can only be good news for Gravel.
