Candidates bring commerce

vendor1vendor2While the candidates work for votes in Virginia, caravans of vendors follow the candidates, selling a vast array of campaign paraphernalia.  Dozens of vendors outside the Barack Obama rally in Roanoke today offered everything from stickers and buttons to “Obama playing cards” and wall hangings. 

The vendors got a close inspection by local police, who made sure they had current city licenses.
