Carole King in Elkhorn, WI

Livewire.com has an article on Carole King’s stop in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, on October 24, with plenty of pictures.

“It’s time to make our country and our world a better place,” King shouted out to the primed supporters. “I have some words of inspiration for you,” she said – “Colin Powell.” Former secretary of state Colin Powell recently endorsed Barack Obama on “Meet the Press.”

King also allayed fears of gun owners that Obama doesn’t support gun rights. “I’m a gun owner and I support responsible hunting,” King said. “Obama does, too. He’s not going to take your guns away.” One of King’s central messages was to get out and vote early and to have people volunteer in the get-out-the-vote cause. “Wouldn’t you say wealth has been redistributed from you to the CEOs?” was King’s response to Senator McCain’s smear tactic of calling Obama a socialist because the Illinois senator told “Joe the Plumber” that he wants to “spread the wealth.” King closed out the 45 minute rally with an enthusiastic but short “You’ve Got A Friend” sing along.

Before moving to the signing table, King told the audience “I want each and every one of you to tell me your names – I really want to know who you are.”
