"We are going to take over the White House!" yelled Barbara Nance Thursday evening.

Nance and around 200 others watched Barack Obama accept the democratic party's nomination for president.

Locally, they know its been a stiff fight to get this far, as area democrats were split between Obama and Clinton.

Bryan businessman Bill Kerr has been with Obama's camp all along. He even let Obama staffers use his office space.

"So when they left, they left a couple of signs," said Kerr.

Bill isn't afraid to show them in his office windows in the Galleria building. In the spirit of debate, his office neighbor put out a republican sign.

"We found it in the bathroom. They finally gave up when it started riding the elevator," said Kerr.

The signs aren't just for his office. Bill has been taking his message to the streets, literally. His car is decorated with Obama's picture and a quote.

Bill believes there are other people just as enthusiastic as he is, but maybe not as vocal.

"They're just afraid to say it in public, because of the business consequence," said Kerr.

Vocal or not, Barak backers say they'll take all the help they can get, so their hard work pays off, come November.

"We are going to take Brazos County. Its no longer going to be republican county, its going to be democrat county," said Nance.
