After all the media hype about Democrat “Sleep Out the Vote” rallies to drum up support for early voting in Ohio, the effort in Hamilton county, a bellwether county for the 2012 election, was largely a dud.
I showed up early (around 7:30a.m) and took these pictures of the front of the Hamilton County Board of Elections before the voting started.
The pictures reveal a sparse crowd. The crowd even gets smaller when you account for the conservatives who are mingled into it. At least one of the folks on the right below is such a supporter. Note, he is wearing an orange Tom Bryan t-shirt. Tom Bryan is the Republican candidate for Ohio’s 33rd State House District (link) (click to enlarge).
Republicans gathered at the Hamilton County GOP Headquarters to kick of their push for early voting as well (though without all the hype).
Some of those speaking at the Republican gathering were Cincinnati Tea Party founder and now candidate for Ohio’s 28th Statehouse District, Mike Wilson (link) (center):
Current Cincinnati Tea Party President George Brunneman also spoke about a return to “…government of the people, by the people, for the people” (center):
Visitor K. Carl Smith from Frederick Douglas Republicans also offered some words of inspiration. He noted, “This election is key. We will decide if we are going down a road of transforming our nation into a European socialist country, or are we going to give this nation back to the principles of the founding fathers.”
K. Carl Smith is also known nationally as “The Conservative Messenger“. Here is a terrific video from him about the importance of remembering the historic life of Frederick Douglass:
One final picture of the “rally” line an hour or so after the voting started:
