Organizers of DraftObama.org say they plan to travel to New Hampshire this weekend to show their support of Senator Barack Obama, who will hold his first events in the state on Sunday.
Supporters from Washington, D.C., and Massachusetts plan to meet with a small group from New Hampshire; they say they will hold up professionally made signs and encourage others to sign a petition asking Obama to run for president in 2008.
The first state chapter of the organization formally launched this morning in New York.
Obama will appear at two events on Sunday, a book signing in Portsmouth and a larger rally in Manchester. The New Hampshire Democratic Party, which is organizing the rally, said it had to change rooms to accommodate the crowd.
