From the campaign:

U.S. Rep. Melissa Bean from Illinois’ Eighth Congressional District will make stops in Charleston and Florence Friday to talk about why U.S. Sen. Barack Obama is the one candidate who can unify America to deliver change we can believe in.

Bean was elected in 2004 in a traditionally Republican district in Illinois. She successfully ran in a conservative district by reaching across party lines with a unifying message that brought people together and focused on problem solving.
