Cyclone Conservatives: Tommy Thompson visits ice cream capital of the world

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

Tommy Thompson made his first visit to Northwest Iowa today and I think at the end of the day, the Thompson campaign has got to be quite pleased with the outcome of how things went. I was able to go to a 11 AM luncheon at the LeMars Family Table restaurant where Tommy spoke to a group of about 30 or so activists and curious on-lookers. Since LeMars is the Ice Cream Capital of the World, Tommy walked into the event eating an ice cream cone and continued to eat it as he shook hands and introduced himself to the people in attendance. The crowd was predominately comprised of senior citizens and this was largely, I'm sure, because of the early lunch hour. There happened to also be a lot of bikers there and I think this group is becoming a good group for Tommy to tap into. Most working aged people probably couldn't get off work for lunch until about the time Tommy's visit in LeMars was over. After getting a really nice introduction from a friend of his from Plymouth County whom he sometimes goes on motorcycle trips with, Tommy started into his stump speech.
