Campaigns Capitalize on Energy From Veep Picks, Conventions

Nineteen-year-old Lindsay Brown registered to vote on Monday. She also stepped into Barack Obama's campaign headquarters in Springfield to help register other new voters.
Brown was always behind Obama but, as an international political studies major, it was the selection of Joe Biden as the Democrats' pick for vice president that sparked her to get involved.

"So whenever he signed on Biden, who I really like his foreign policy, that kind of put me into motion to start getting on the campaign because I liked his V.P. pick," said Brown.

Local Republican Kristen Sanocki says more people are working for the Republican nominee than just a week ago because of the pick of Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate.

"Definitely, when Palin announced, we had a surge of people come to us asking how they could get involved," Sanocki said.
