Kerry in Mansfield

John Kerry made a campiagn stop in Mansfield last night (about fifteen miles from here). A reader who was there writes:

"I was at the game last nite when Kerry showed up. I was in the stadium guarding a block of seats so I didn’t go out to see him. Neither did too many others. It was an amazing lack of response. When I finally climbed to the top of the stadium to see what was going on, there were about as many staff around Kerry as there were local residents. Most of the people coming into the game were ignoring him.

This link from the paper shows Kerry giving some pointers to the Tygers. The home team went on to loose 7 to 34."

Kerry also stopped at nearby Bellville. About 2,000 people were there.

On a related note, my family and I attended the rally for the President here in Columbus on Wed. I know about 20,000 tickets were distributed, so I assume attendance was close to that. It was great - the crowd showed so much enthusiasm and affection for the President & Mrs. Bush.

at the time that Kerry stopped in bellville, we were practicing on the field for the local football game. I play Bass Drum for the Clear Fork Highschool Marching band, and i would have loved to meet him.
