With expectations high, a Sunday afternoon campaign rally in High Point, N.C. appeared to deliver for the newly formed Republican presidential ticket.
Campaign officials for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney tell The Daily Caller that well over 10,000 people attended a campaign rally at High Point’s Absolute Style Furniture showroom Sunday. The campaign estimates that 1,200 people were inside the venue while another 10,000 were outside.
The event, part of the campaign’s “Romney Plan for a Stronger Middle Class” bus tour, came a day after Romney named Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.
Guilford County Republican Party chairman Al Bouldin told the Greensboro, N.C. News & Record in advance of the event that enthusiasm for the ticket is high following the Ryan pick.
“I think that most Americans will be very excited over this ticket, and I think that the crowds that are going to show up in High Point will be a good example of that excitement level,” he said.
