Ron Paul draws big Denver crowd
The alarm in the Colorado Convention Center employee's voice was verging on panic.
"That room is packed so tight it's not even funny," he shouted into a radio Friday night as the Segway he was riding hummed and swerved down a wide carpeted hallway.
The crowd for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul was so large it surprised his own organizers. They were forced to hurriedly open partitions to double the size of the ballroom space minutes before Paul's scheduled appearance in the Four Seasons Ballroom. When that wasn't enough hundreds of people stood rimming the hall that sits 1,536. The Denver Post - Ron Paul draws big Denver crowd
