Concord, NH -- Well, my friends, I made it. I am currently sitting inside the media room at the Capitol Center for the Arts waiting for the debate to start. Outside, hundreds of Granite Staters have gathered and I had a few minutes to snap a few photos before picking up my media credentials.
As the photo below shows, most of those gathered are Shaheen supporters.
But I did see some Brown signs.
Below is where everyone will walk in. In the background, you can see an American flag with President Obama's face upside down.
This is the media room.
And for fun, I snapped this on my ride up to New Hampshire. I went right.
Apologies for the so-so quality but I wanted to you guys a sense of what it's like up here in New Hampshire. When I arrived, roughly three and a half hours before the debate started, there were already hundreds of people holding signs outside the venue. Though I overheard one spectator say she's stopped watching television altogether "because of the ads," people here are clearly engaged and ready for the debate. I was somewhat surprised, however,that there weren't more Brown supporters on scene. But it's still early.
As a reminder, the debate will start at 8:00 PM EST. Stay tuned.
