Another area of the country has spoken and Barack Obama has made a clean sweep of this year’s bobbleelections.

Sacramento holds a bobble election

In yet another non Goldklang promotion, the Sacramento Rivercats will hold a bobbleelection on August 30th, 2008 to determine that city’s “choice” for 2008.  The Rivercats will distribute 1,500 total bobbles and like the others, the first to run out wins.  In the past 7 elections, Barack Obama has had a decisive margin of victory, sweeping all 7 municipalities.
