Thousands “More than 10,000” Rally for Mitt Romney in Apopka, Florida

While I was away the photos came flying in and Apopka, Florida became Romney Country where they abandoned their cars and walked miles to see the next President. Kevin Madden provided a panorama of the crowd but remember, the seating was 10,000 so the people standing (in the middle photo below) are the thousands of overflow:

The Romney campaign said it took in RSVPs from 14,000 to 15,000 people to the event, though it did not know how many actually came. Apopka Chief Administrative Officer Richard Anderson said earlier the amphitheater had a capacity of about 10,000. The place was overflowing, and most of the last few thousand people, at least, who arrived had to fight through crawling traffic. Many people abandoned their cars along the roads’ grassy shoulders and walked a mile or more to get to the park.

    I was so impressed with Mitt Romney in the debate..We must make him our next president and see what he can do for us..We dont need the other one who does nothing but go from tv shows to impress the public …We need a real president and I know Mitt Romney can be that one.
    Why cant people see this it really upsets me to see how they can ignore Mitt Romney he is genuine and is truly a leader.The anchor news man and women show their favortism and it hurts the people who really do care about this country..I have already voted and I know Mitt Romney will win he has to…We will be in so much trouble if he doesnt win..God help us..

      I love how people back a person and not know really what he is about. He goes to church and that makes him the best person? I think people really need to look into each person running for President and not what they say one time on TV. Look at what they say all the time not just one time.
