TPM Reader KM also bailed:
I dont know how many people attended, but the crowd was overflowing the official permit area by 11am. All the way put 7th street to gallery place is walking traffic only.
They were really unprepared for the size of the crowd. No secondary speakers or jumbotrons set up.
My friends and i left because we couldn’t see anything (we’ll send pix later) but every bar in gallery place is jammed and showing the rally on tv. I’m in a sports bar, and they’re showing cspan on more tvs than football.
It’s insane down here.
