Despite Snowstorm, Martin O'Malley Gets One Person At Campaign Event

Let's just blame the weather.
Despite Snowstorm, Martin O'Malley Gets One Person At Campaign Event

Mama said there'd be days like that. Iowa is a tough gig for any candidate, but Martin O'Malley had kind of a crummy day Monday.

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley held a Monday evening campaign event in the tiny town of Tama, Iowa. And with a powerful winter storm battering the Midwest, he might not have expected an enormous turnout.

Indeed, his event attracted just one person: Kenneth.


"The very last event of the night, we actually had a whopping total of one person show up," O’Malley said today."But, by God, he was glad to see me. So we spent the time with him."

Despite the circumstances, O’Malley apparently was unable to win Kenneth over, at least not yet.

“I'm working on him,” O'Malley said. “He claims he's still uncommitted.”

O'Malley continued: "But I was glad he took the time to come out in the snow to see me. We almost canceled that last event but we were out there anyways, so we plowed through."
