The McCain Rally, Update: More Videos

Okay, so on what John McCain called and “Arizona-like” day in O’fallon, Missouri, I attended the Road to the Convention Rally.  The speakers included:

-Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt

-Candidate for Gov., Rep. Kenny Hulsolf

-Sen. Kit Bond

-Fmr. Missouri Sen. Jim Talent

-Fmr. Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee

-Fmr. Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney

-Alaska Gov., and VP Candidate Sarah Palin

-Arizona Sen., Presidential candidate, John McCain 

Here’s a Politico Story/Post on the event… HERE.

The Palin effect: crowd size

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

17,000+ today for the McCain-Palin rally outside of St. Louis, according to a Secret Service magnetometer count provided by the campaign.

As one veteran of Missouri politics said, that’s the sort of crowd usually seen in October for a president — not in August for a candidate.

It’s also a record-best for McCain.

Yes, yes, it’s just about a routine crowd for Obama. But there is perhaps no better indicator of how Palin is helping McCain close the enthusiasm gap than the number of people showing up the past two days in Pennsylvania and Missouri.

And, to be fair, it didn’t hurt to have the other two guys below show up, both of whom fared well in the Missouri GOP primary and were touted for over a week as marquee quests.
