More than 800 people showed up for Sen. John McCain’s appearance at the Sheraton hotel in downtown Birmingham on Saturday afternoon. He was introduced by his wife and U.S. Rep. Spencer Bachus.

After speaking for about 30 minutes, he greeted his supporters before addressing the media directly in a series of one on-ones.

Edwards and McCain now planning Birmingham campaign visits

I guess they felt like they need to do it now that Obama and Huckabee have. Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards now plans to visit Birmingham, AL on Saturday, though we’re still not quite sure about when and where it will be; we’re thinking it should be up here eventually.

On the Republican side, Arizona Senator John McCain will take his turn stumping in the Magic City on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. His event will take place at the Birmingham Sheraton. We’re figuring that he’ll eventually add the date to his online campaign calendar as well.
