This is footage taken exactly at 11:45 AM on the morning of November 3, 2008 at the Franklin County GOP Headquarters on 240 N. 5th St in Columbus, Ohio. That’s the moment when a “Rally With Special Guest Governor Mitt Romney” was to have begun.
Invitations to the rally were sent out to people across Central Ohio, but as you can see in the video, the event was rather sparsely attended. There were some phone bankers and some campaign staffers and some media people with cameras and microphones… and that was pretty much it.
The base does not appear to be enthused… or hey, to be fair, maybe it’s just that the base has a hair appointment.
