Professor Oakley on the Campaign Trail with Hillary Clinton

Oakley and Clinton

John Oakley and his wife, Freddie Oakley (former Yolo County Clerk-Recorder and Registrar of Voters) wrote me that they are just back from a very interesting time in Iowa working on the front lines of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Along with other of Hillary Clinton’s Yale Law School classmates, John was assigned to canvass the East Side of Des Moines, a classically blue-collar, multi-racial district. In the end, Clinton won the East Side 54-46. Professor Oakley says those delegates were the difference in Hillary’s razor-thin margin statewide!
