Posted on 09/08/2012 10:24:25 AM PDT by republicangel
Del. Barry Knight, with a bit of folksy charm, warmed up a crowd of several hundred people who had gathered in an aircraft hanger to hear Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Knight, a Pungo hog farmer, echoed the GOP's "We built that" theme as he told a story of working on a dairy farm growing up, hoping to someday buy his own farm.
"I didn't see a government official milking that cow," Knight shouted to cheers.
Cars were lined up for a half mile along the rural two-lane road leading to the Virginia Beach Military Aviation Museum, where Romney was scheduled to speak at 1:25 p.m.

Cool live feed! That crowd is a lot larger than “several hundred”.
“LIveFreeOrDIe1776: No union thugs, no agitators, no occupier anarchists, no race bullies....That’s America at its best!”
Feed seems to be having problems. Screen shows OFFLINE.
It’s working fine now. VA GOV McDonnell is warming up the crowd, praising the local veterans and the military.
What are the crowd sizes? I’m kind of worried. Sarah was pulling huge crowds and I saw Bush in PA with a crowd of like 20,000.
MR coming on now
It’s really a treat to watch and LISTEN to Romney at one of these rallies.
I highly recommend it! :)
