So Erin and I went to a campaign event for Senator Harry Reid’s re-election effort. We figured it would be fun, free food, and we’re big fans of being able to buy health insurance.
I’ve been to a lot of campaign events in my days, but none that I can remember as just a person, a citizen, usually it was as a journalist. It was a fun change of pace for me.
One of the humourous little things I saw though was the campaign volunteers handing out signs to the attendees. The campaign didn’t allow people to bring in signs but would hand them out to attendees. That’s one way to keep everyone on message I guess.
To be fair, this is nowhere near as bad as some of the other stories I’ve read about other campaigns, but it was funny to see.
