Krusty Konservative: McCain Visit Rekap
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
Sen. John McCain spent most of his Saturday in Iowa, opting not to return to D.C. for a rare Saturday vote. McCain's visit to Iowa was his first as a presidential kandidate, and by all accounts his trip was a success. The McCain campaign organized events in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Davenport. I have seen attendance numbers for the Des Moines event from anywhere from 150 to 400. My sources tell be that there were probable about 350 people in attendance. In Cedar Rapids he drew about 500 and had about 400 in Davenport. I had a trusted korrespondent in Des Moines who gave me the following report. The event started out with a welcome speech from Iowa Chairman Dave Roederer. Dave lit up the crowd with a speech about the importance of the 2008 elections, the important issues facing us, and imploring the krowd to listen to the Senator and make their decisions as to who to support.
