Radio Iowa: McCain's May Day in Des Moines

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

It's Thursday, May 1, 2008, and Republican presidential candidate John
McCain is due to speak here at the Polk County Convention Complex at 2
o'clock this afternoon. A sign on the ground floor advises "Eddie's
Shoe Shine" is set up on he second floor. I didn't see a McCain
campaign sign anywhere. It's 1:25 p.m. McCain Iowa chairman Dave
Roederer is quizzing the crowd of about 250, asking questions which
require yes or no answers. After The Pledge and The National Anthem,
longtime Iowa GOP insider Marvin Pomerantz of Des Moines made an
appeal to the crowd for money. "We don't have the conflict that some
other parties have. Thanks goodness," Pomerantz said.
