A Day Covering Ted Cruz Stop one WRKO event Hooksett NH

The sec­ond in an occa­sional series where I cover a sin­gle Pres­i­den­tial Can­di­date at mul­ti­ple event in a day. (My day of cov­er­age of Ben Car­son from mid May is here and here).

Sat­ur­day May 30th I spent the day cov­er­ing Ted Cruz this is what I saw.

My first stop was at the WRKO town hall at South­ern New Hamp­shire Uni­ver­sity in Hook­sett NH. I was run­ning a tad late so unfor­tu­nately I had to park in the 3rd an aux­il­iary park­ing lot which really empha­sized the size of the crowd.

It was a long walk to the venue (and a rather long walk to inside of it to the gym area.

There was no AC and it was a gor­geous sat­ur­day morn­ing yet I hand counted 512 peo­ple by the time I sat in the cor­ner and peo­ple were still com­ing in (Sen Cruz men­tioned 600 peo­ple at his 2nd stop which is entirely credible).

WRKO host Jeff Kuh­ner mod­er­ated and intro­duced the Sen­a­tor who gave about a 20 minute speech

That I recorded in two parts

The crowd really liked the speech. After the speech Kuh­ner asked him a series of ques­tion on mul­ti­ple topics

from Hillary

who was worth 2 questions

on Immi­gra­tion

and ille­gal immigrants;

On Fast Track

I must admit he edu­cated me here

He han­dled the ques­tion on Sen­a­tors vs Gov­er­nors VERY well.

He then took ques­tions from the Audi­ence, on ISIS

on trust (a big con­ser­v­a­tive issue)

Boots on the Ground in Iraq

On attract­ing the Evan­gel­i­cal vote

And what to do about the GOP field

That last ques­tion was more of a speech than a question

Quick thought, can you pic­ture Hillary Clin­ton tak­ing ques­tions like this? (Hope you weren’t drink­ing when I said that).

When it was done the Sen­a­tor mixed with the crowd but I was more inter­ested in hear­ing more about Speaker Bill O’Brien choos­ing the Cruz cam­paign. So I asked the Fmr speaker for an inter­view & Speaker Bill O’Brien concented.

He is a strong con­ser­v­a­tive and in a very crowded field the endorse­ment of such a con­ser­v­a­tive leader can make a big difference.

I had inter­viewed the speaker many times and he men­tioned he was hold­ing a house party for the Sen­a­tor directly after the event and invited me on the spot. I don’t own a GPS there was no open net in this loca­tion so he sug­gested I try to fol­low him to get there, but that’s the next post.

The second in an occasional series where I cover a single Presidential Candidate at multiple event in a day.  (My day of coverage of Ben Carson from mid May is here and here).

Saturday May 30th I spent the day covering Ted Cruz this is what I saw.

My first stop was at the WRKO town hall at Southern New Hampshire University in Hooksett NH.  I was running a tad late so unfortunately I had to park in the 3rd an auxiliary parking lot which really emphasized the size of the crowd.

It was a long walk to the venue (and a rather long walk to inside of it to the gym area.

There was no AC and it was a gorgeous saturday morning yet I hand counted 512 people by the time I sat in the corner and people were still coming in (Sen Cruz mentioned 600 people at his 2nd stop which is entirely credible).

WRKO host Jeff Kuhner moderated and introduced the Senator who gave about a 20 minute speech

That I recorded in two parts

The crowd really liked the speech. After the speech Kuhner asked him a series of question on multiple topics

from Hillary

who was worth 2 questions

on Immigration

and illegal immigrants;

On Fast Track

I must admit he educated me here

He handled the question on Senators vs Governors VERY well.

He then took questions from the Audience, on ISIS

on trust (a big conservative issue)

Boots on the Ground in Iraq

On attracting the Evangelical vote

And what to do about the GOP field

That last question was more of a speech than a question

Quick thought, can you picture Hillary Clinton taking questions like this? (Hope you weren’t drinking when I said that).

When it was done the Senator mixed with the crowd but I was more interested in hearing more about Speaker Bill O’Brien choosing the Cruz campaign. So I asked the Fmr speaker for an interview & Speaker Bill O’Brien concented.  

He is a strong conservative and in a very crowded field the endorsement of such a conservative leader can make a big difference.

I had interviewed the speaker many times and he mentioned he was holding a house party for the Senator directly after the event and invited me on the spot.  I don’t own a GPS  there was no open net in this location so he suggested I try to follow him to get there, but that’s the next post.
