Student stumps for Obama presidential campaign

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

The past several days have been hectic for 18-year-old Colin Davis of Canton.

He started his second semester at Knox College, is battling a cold which has made him hoarse and he’s gotten very little sleep. Add to that the fact that he’s been in Iowa, working with the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

Davis is one of about a dozen interns for Obama’s campaign in the state of Illinois. He has worked with the senator since August, after learning of the internship in July.

While most teens don’t spend their time juggling school, sports and the duties of assisting with a national bid for the presidency, political work is in Davis’ blood.
