I gotta say, candidate Jackson Lahmeyer put on a splash at the OKC Freedom Rally on Saturday. He must be getting financed because he rented the Embassy Suites Conference Center and the turnout was large by 2:00 pm. Around 2500 capacity it seems and the campaign claims that 2250 tickets were already sold as of Thursday.
The list of headliners is large, Lahmeyer, General Michael Flynn, and large number of pastors and motivational speakers. There is definitely a spiritual tone to the crowd.
I say tone because I and the other media folks didn't get to see much. Upon arrival some us were greeted by a pit bull of a supporter, short man in a suit. Pretty rude actually until the Lahmeyer campaign folks rescued us and escorted us to a big room with a dozen or so chairs that was being used as a stock room for someone selling t shirts in a booth in the hallway.
