Huckabee Rally Recap

Picture of Huckabee taken from video that I shot of him at his rally at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Columbus.

I am so glad I went to see Huckabee yesterday! I didn't get to get an autograph as I had hoped, but I did get to see him face to face. Matt solidified his best friend status (love ya brother) yesterday.

Matt got an exclusive 1-on-1 with Huckabee and it was awesome. It only lasted a few minutes, but I got to record it all on video. I was just feet away from Mike! The only bad thing was that I couldn't say anything of any type of support for him because I was with the "media". He nodded at me when Matt introduced me, and I nodded back. That was cool enough for me! Here's the link to the video I took of Huckabee:

It was a personal victory because I overcame a fear of driving in downtown Columbus. The rally was excellent, and his whole message was awesome. I was probably 10-12 rows back; which really wasn't too far away. I forgot my digital camera at home so I relied on a disposable. Hopefully at least one turned out well. The full speech is coming soon, but you can listen to and watch part of the speech as filmed by Bert Garrison, here:

Thanks again Matt for a great experience. Thank you to a couple of people who helped me overcome a fear of driving downtown, and thank you Mike Huckabee for still believing in Ohio! Go Huckabee!!!


  1. Thanks for being a great camera guy. If you notice the video is down that's because apparently our PD freaked out that we had the Newsradio 610 WTVN logo on the video not the NewsTalk 610 WTVN logo. I have yet to find another person that noticed, but hey. I'll try and find a way to get the video to you so you can re-post it.

    You rock Bob!

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I just changed the link for the video so that no one misses my steady hand work. :)

  3. I'm not commenting on that. ;)

  4. So didn't mean it that way. :(

  5. I know. Just messin' with you!
