McCain Visits Wilmington College

Not one to miss a chance to campaign in the Heartland, United States Sen. John McCain visited the Wilmington College campus last Thursday to meet with local citizens to hear concerns about the workforce reduction planned by DHL at the Wilmington Air Park.
After a roundtable discussion with local leaders and members of the task force — which has selected Wilmington College as the host site for its meetings — McCain spoke to local residents who gathered on the WC mall. The presidential hopeful’s hour-long visit to campus concluded, but not before McCain stopped to shake hands and pose for photos with people gathered along College Street.

Wilmington President, Dr. Dan DiBiasio greeted the presidential candidate and mentioned his pleasure with the Senator's concern for the area.
