“Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee,” the text message, sent at around 3 a.m. ET, said.
“Joe and I will appear for the first time as running mates this afternoon in Springfield, Illinois — the same place this campaign began more than 19 months ago,” Obama said in an e-mail sent to supporters Saturday morning.
It was announced at 2 a.m.CST via the promised text message.
I’ve never seen anything like this. They announce it in the middle of the night?
So the world wakes up to an Obama/Biden ticket.
