This is 100% unlrelated to the campaign.
Well, officially, anyway. The campaign isn’t coordinating it. And the PAC isn’t coordinating it. And those two groups can’t coordinate with each other.
But you better believe this is a Dr. Ben Carson event.
So what’s it going to be like? Like this:
I was in Overland Park, Kansas earlier today (Friday) for his 11am event. It lasted an hour and a half. And Carson signed books like Pete Rose signs baseballs on Hall of Fame week in Cooperstown. I dont’ know how his hand doesn’t cramp.
But if you’re planning on attending tonight’s event keep this in mind:
I spoke to the woman who was 3rd in line for the Overland Park event (at a local bookstore near the Sprint campus).
She got in line at 7:00am for the 11am event. They opened the doors at 9am. By 10am, the lines that snaked through the store — with probably 100 yards of aisles — were filled.
By 11am, the line went outside the store, and went about 100-150 yards.
See it here:
Now keep this in mind:
It will be a party.
It’s Friday night. Everyone’s off work. And you’ve got a big crowd of like-minded folks for the current front-runner for the Iowa Caucuses.
It’ll be fun. If you’re not into lines, bring something to keep you busy. Call up the food-trucks and tell them to park. Hopefully someone will come with music.
Iowa is fortunate that they get spoiled with this type of stuff all the time. You’ve got a nice opportunity to take part.
And send me your pics!
(Oh, and because it’s what the kool kidz do, here’s a Vine of the line…)
While we’re at it, here are a couple new ads that the Carson Camp put out today:
And here’s the one that NBC featured today.
And while we’re at it at it, here is my interview with Dr. Carson on The Wheels Down Politics Show:
Share it with your friends and enemies (i.e. Hillary)!
Have a great weekend and Go Huskers and Go Royals!
(By the way, this post shouldn’t be read as endorsement of Dr. Carson, but as endorsement of getting involved when politics comes to town!)
