Just curious - how have these campaign visits effected business in the strip mall where the GOP Victory Center is located?

Better question, why are all these GOP heavyweights wasting their valuable time in St Croix county/Hudson which will surely go their way? Maybe they know they're losing and want some warm fuzzies before the curtain falls.

GOP heavyweights??? Seriously? Rudy Giuliana (Loser - NY), Norm Coleman (Loser - MN), Barbara Comstock (Member of VA House of Delegates)? The GOPers must be pretty scared if this is the best they have. Why not finish off the agenda with former half-governor Sarah Palin (Loser - AK)?

Most businesses appreciate activities and traffic near their uh, businesses. Do you think maybe a few pizzas have been purchased. I saw boxes of pizza at the event from Carbones....classy move to patronize a local business. Leave it to a bunch of free market capitalists! How are those Dem events going these days? Too bad crazy Uncle Joe Biden tha amazing human gaffe machine hasn't rolled into town. You should be asking why there is so much GOP activity in blue states. I think you will get your answer on Tuesday night...stay tuned.

There is so much GOP activity in "blue states" because the GOP is losing in the "swing states".
John Feia November 04, 2012 at 04:01 AM
Actually, Rosanne Barr is running as an Independent Presidential candidate.

How droll, yomammy. Governor Christie would win any "heavyweight" contest.

My coverage of this event is now up: http://patch.com/A-zpHg. It contains 10 videos and more than 50 photos. Enjoy!

22 polls were taken in the "Battleground States" on Friday. The results: 2 ties; Romoney ahead in 1; President Obama ahead in 19. So perhaps that's why the TEAPublican desparation?
