MIDLAND - While Barack Obama and Joe Biden were rallying on Saturday afternoon, Midland Democrats said good luck to Chris Hightower who will be flying out on Sunday morning.

He has been packing his bags for the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado.

Last June, Hightower was elected to represent Senatorial District 31, which includes 26 Counties from West Texas to the upper panhandle area.

Hightower says he supports many of Barack Obama's plans for government improvement and his overall message of change.

Hightower says from here, he will be staying pretty busy for the next five days.

He is expected to be one of 85,000 supporters who will watch Obama accept the Democratic Nomination in person.
