The campaign sold 10,320 tickets to the rally, priced at $17.76, and it gave away about another 1,000 at the door. The event took place at the Target center in Minneapolis, the same arena that will host Rage Against the Machine on Wednesday.So a little more than 11,000 attended. The Republican convention was half empty.
Now let me think, maybe 50 PUMAs showed up in Denver, but it was all PUMA all the time until Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton spoke.
It's the Republican Party that's badly divided my friends, not the Democratic Party. Want proof? The Republican Party has severely limited Ron Paul's access to the Republican National Convention:
Earlier Tuesday, Paul said he was told he could go to the Republican convention floor, but only under very restricted conditions.Bill and Hillary were major speakers at the Democratic Convention and receieved thunderous applause. Ron Paul can only attend the RNC "under very restricted conditions."
The Republican National Committee told Paul he would have to pick up his pass at the gate and couldn't have any guests.
"Republican congressmen should have a pass to the floor, but they said, 'Your pass will be at the gate, and we'll pick it up when you leave, and you can't take anybody with you,' " he said on CNN's "American Morning."
Now tell me again which party is divided.
