who can tell us what the crowd size is? I’m watching C-Span - they’ve said “very large crowd”.

Anyone from Virginia know what capacity is normal for this facility? Don’t know why, but they are about 1 hour behind.

Can’t wait to see them. Great job, last night.

I googled for the crowd size.

The “facility” is outdoors at the country fairgrounds.

Traffic was backed up for some miles as people tried to get in.

The expected crowd was 10,000.

The estimated actual crowd was 15,000.

This info came from a variety of online sources but does not involve national media like AP but local media.

That’s why we’re able to find out anything, and trust its accuracy. Local sources.

>> who can tell us what the crowd size is? <<

Ryan said last night on Hannity’s 9 pm EDT show that the crowd numbered 12,000, after which Hannity made a very snarky reply about the TV show’s having 4 million viewers.

(Hannity did seem quickly to realize — although too late — that his remark had been inappropriate. I don’t know, however, if he later made an actual apology.)

The venue was saying it held 10,000. Local sheriff said they parked 14,000 cars! I was there and could see hundreds walking in the road because there was no more parking. The interstate nearby had a 6 mile backup east bound and 4 miles west bound which those had to turn around and go home. Hope that helps
