Latinos campaign for Obama in caravan of hope

Latino supporters of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) drove through the Bronx and Manhattan Sunday in a caravan of hope and change.

Members of Latinos Con Obama started along the Grand Concourse in more than 20 vehicles. They brought posters, signs and buttons. Drivers flashed their lights, played music and honked their horns to send a clear message.

"Our job is to come out here and get the word out," says Haile Rivera, of Latinos Con Obama. "Spread the word that he is around here, not physically, but in spirit. We're here campaigning for him to become the next president."

The Democratic primary is Super Tuesday, Feb. 5. Obama is competing against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) for the presidential nomination.
