Barack Obama is getting support from people in all walks of life, from Hollywood celebrities to, yes, even rednecks.

Len Spencer, like thousands of others here has a cause. He's a "Rednecks for Obama," part of a not-really-that-big club.

"We've had mostly good, positive reaction from yesterday through today," he said. When asked how long he plans to stay in Denver, he answered, "'Til our money holds out."

"How many members are there in ‘Rednecks for Obama?'" we asked.

"Two," he answered.

Spencer and his friend are from Missouri. He says he eats frogs, squirrels and rabbits, and if that doesn't qualify him for redneck status, he doesn't know what does. He says he's supporting Obama because he thinks Obama is the man to help the country in a critical time.
