Iowa is so last week. South Carolina is where it’s at for the presidential hopefuls. Tim and I really like Mike Huckabee and even though my husband can’t vote (he’s not a US citizen) he joined me at a Mike Huckabee rally tonight at Furman University. I did entice him with the fact that Chuck Norris may be there. (He wasn’t.) But it still turned out to be a good time.
That’s me and Michelle by Mike’s bus. Marco says he saw Mike’s wife hanging out inside.
The crowd was enormous. The room was packed and to be honest I couldn’t see Mike at all during his speech. But afterwards I pushed my way through the crowd to snap a few shots.
I went home with a Huckabee yard sign and for the first time in my life I used my lawn to advertise for a politician. I’ve always been in the media and backing a candidate wouldn’t have been appropriate then. But now I’m free to stick as many signs in my yard as I want. And that feels good.
