It’s been a hot August in Richmond, but the Hilary Clinton campaign office, located in Scott’s Addition across from Richard’s Gentlemen’s club, is surprisingly cool; there’s more than enough people in the room to increase temperatures from body heat alone.
The office, in line with most Scott’s Addition buildings, is a converted garage with giant roll up doors still intact as if a 96 Mercury Grand Marquis could roll in for body work at any moment. There’s colorful handprinted signs on the walls with every opportunity for “Hillary” and “RVA” to be slammed together for the sake of aesthetic and promotional value. With about 15 people making phone calls or talking in groups, it’s not exactly a quiet place, and things appear to be getting done.
