Spokespersons leading the tour include Sacramento military mom (and national pro-troop movement leader), Deborah Johns; Sacramento-based radio talk show host and TV pundit, Mark Williams; and black conservative activist and patriotic singer, Lloyd Marcus.

The Sacramento Union newspaper reported on the effort this week, “Sacto serves as launching point for pro-McCain effort.” You can read the story here:

The national bus tour will conduct 35 pro-McCain/Palin and anti-Obama/Biden rallies in key swing states where the presidential election will be determined including: Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
