Romney Campaign Rally in Bucks County, Pennsylvania
Last night 30,000 people gathered at Shadybrook Farm in Bucks County, PA for a Romney/Ryan rally. Despite the chilly temperature people patiently waited several hours for Mitt and Ann to arrive.
As I walked around the staging area, the feeling of the crowd was that of organic upbeat enthusiasm. People seemed hopeful and looking forward to election day. Presidential rallies are a quintessential American experience, something everyone should attend regardless of your political affiliation. Due to a tight marathon training schedule, the Romney rally was the only one I was able to attend this year and I was not disappointed by the show.
The dense crowd made photography a challenge and I glanced enviously numerous times at the photojournalists milling around their reserved media stand. One day, my friends, I’ll be on that stand. Mitt and Ann arrived to the Rocky Theme and the crowd when wild. I was able to capture video of Ann’s introduction of her husband, Mitt Romney.
When Mitt spoke, the energy of the crowd was electric despite the hours of standing and the cold temperature. Mitt was interrupted numerous times with chants of ‘Two more days’ and ‘USA, USA’. He gave a solid speech and soon it was time for my favorite part…
