Candidate Quote of the Day: “NEVER Elect a Politician Who Doesn’t Like Hotdogs”

Words to live by. And not a problem in this instance. (Helps when he even makes them himself.)

Jim Holler, owner of the (daggumdelicious) Doghouse Deli in Downtown Pensacola for 33 years, was offering pointers. Marco had things literally well in hand.

Got a good, Pensacola lunchtime crowd out!! There were tons of pictures before Marco started speaking. It was billed as a National Federation of Independent Businessmen’s event, but it was open to everyone. And they KEPT showing up ~ squeaking quietly through the front doors behind Marco’s back even as he was addressing the packed Doghouse…

…as WELL as making sure they got their pictures taken with him before they let him go! Lots of press, too, so I might have video later. (“What was the guy’s last name that introduced him..?”)

Flashes going off EVERYWHERE and the sidewalk outside wasn’t any safer. (Roger Hedgecock appeared at my side and introduced himself. THAT was pretty cool! “You’ll have a Rubio table at my show tonight, right?” Well…sure…I guess? I don’t have, but 3 bumper stickers left and not a yard sign to my name, but I’m chock FULL of personality…)

My phone started ringing at about 7 this morning, with the press release and my number on the front page of the local section. People asking, “could they come?” Telling them “PLEASE DO!” It’s wonderful to watch folks respond to him ~ folks who’ve never seen him in person. I especially love that part. It’s neat. Called the RPOF lad to see if HE had any signs across town for me, so I could keep “Roger” on a first name basis, and he started whooping as he pulled up, “There’s all sorts of Rubio people waiting outside the building! I gotta go!” So there WON’T be any signs if he HAD any. **sigh** There goes my new bud “Roger”.

But all those folks went straight from downtown to go get themselves a sign. How ’bout that?

Hot dawg! What a morning. I LOVE this town.

    But did you have any fun? 😉

  2. Donna D. says:

    We need more politicians like him!

  3. JeffS says:

    KEWL!!!! We need more smart senators, and fewer dumb senators (e.g., Patty Murray, from my state).

  4. tree hugging sister says:

    I just saw a video of Anne Coulter where she said Murray was the dumbest person on the planet. Rubio is sharp, he’ll do good.

  5. major dad says:

    Woops that was me who saw the video not THS.

    Bings – I expect you to have plenty of campaign stops at the various Windmill franchises.

    Is there any way to clone a dozen Rubios and send them to Illinois?

  11. Kate P says:

    That is awesome. (That’s what we need–more hot dog events!)

  12. barking spider says:

    Of the reasons to love Marco (and there are many)tops on my list is that he is going to end the political career of that whore Charlie Crist.

  13. Donna D. says:

    Does he have a brother in the Jersey area!

  14. Gary from Jersey says:

    Rubio/Christie? Christie/Rubio in 2012? I can dream, right?

  15. Dave J. says:

    Phenomenal, THS: I love Marco, and as I said elsewhere, YOU are becoming quite the politico yourself! 🙂
