After Tour, Brumskine Holds Significant Advantage Outside Monrovia
- Candidate Scheduled to Address Supporters in America & Europe this Sunday
Washington, DC April 27 - Ending a successful nationwide tour, Liberian leading presidential candidate Charles Walker Brumskine is scheduled to address hundreds of supporters in the United States this Sunday in a bid to inform them of “critical issues in the journey ahead.”
The scheduled address which will be delivered live via an inter-continental teleconference, comes on the heels of his month long familiarization tour of the Liberian heartlands which of late has revealed the significant strength of a Brumskine candidacy described by various media outlets in Liberia as the most formidable grassroots movement outside the Monrovia conclave. The Brumskine tour which covered a 1000 mile landscape was marked by overwhelming turnouts on every stop allowing the candidate to greet a populace of over 600,000 Liberians in at least ten geographic subdivisions.
Political observers attribute Brumskine’s tremendous grassroots strength to his unique standing as the only leading presidential candidate who was born and raised outside Monrovia being educated in the public school system. The Brumskine organization, headquartered in Grand Bassa County, remains the only presidential campaign operation based outside the Liberian capital.
His recent familiarization tour of the Liberian heartlands, as officially announced, was triggered by the candidate’s desire to ensure an up to date awareness of the diverse needs of the people in all parts of Liberia in advance to an impending campaign process. On the tour, he repeatedly voiced his long held belief that an authentic development plan for Liberia must begin by empowering the people from the village level.
An official FOB announcement specifically mentioned that Sunday’s address is scheduled for 9pm eastern time.
