Obama cancels Thursday rally in Madison

The Milwaukee JournalSentinel is reporting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s planned visit to Madison on Thursday has been canceled. According to a City of Madison spokesperson, the Obama/Biden campaign withdrew its application for a rally permit. No reason has been given for the cancellation of the planned rally, but if I had to venture a guess, I’d say it had a lot to do with polls showing Sen. Obama has opened up a double digit lead over Sen. John McCain in Wisconsin.

Edit: CNN is reporting Sen. Obama cancelled events on Thursday and Friday to go to Hawaii to visit his ailing grandmother.
