Just finished uploading photos from a great event yesterday in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Youth for Ron Paul kickoff at the University of Las Vegas-Nevada. Ron spoke to a standing room crowd, but I am not sure on exactly how many attended the event. There may be an estimate from a media source, but I haven't looked yet. Anyway, I got some photos from the event that I would like to share with those who were unable to attend the event. You can find even more here (http://flickr.com/gageskidmore).

It was a really energetic meeting, and is great to see such support for Ron Paul in Nevada. I hope he decides to come back often, and help to continue to energize the grassroots volunteers in the area to get out the vote. I'll also have photos from Ron's speech at the WRLC sometime later today, which was much more subdued, mainly because of the high ticket cost to the conference I believe.

You can find more than 40 photos from the event here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/gageskidmore/sets/72157627815588629/).

Great pictures!

An article said the room seated 315, so if there were people standing, it was more than that. Of course the major media covered the WRLC where Cainiacs walked out right before Ron's speech, and reported that. Ron's folks were waiting for him, here.

Yeah, there was a pretty good crowd for Cain's speech at WRLC, and there was some unknown guy speaking before Ron so everyone left. There wasn't really a crowd there for Ron's speech at the conference, mainly because, as I said (or at least what I think the reason is), the conference was pretty expensive to attend. It was like $220 per ticket for adults, and most people who would've wanted to see Ron probably already saw him at this free event earlier in the day.

thanks for clarifying that they walked out for the unknown guy, not for Ron, because that wasn't how it was written up, at all.

Yeah, his name was Mark Green, he is the "Senior Director at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition" and former Congressman according to WRLC's agenda.

It was in the "board room" of the Thomas & Mack Center.

That suit looks really good on him.

Fits good around the shoulders and arms.

Also, love to see Carol in the front. Love them as always Gage!

Yeah, I thought it looked kind of good around the neck, still looked a little long in the arms though, or his white shirt underneath was too short. Might've just been because Ron was standing up straight in the first photo.

Nice photos Gage. His suit rocks. Note the hand stitching around the lapel. Very suave rico. I would have had the curve on the shoulder padding reversed so the shoulders did not look rounded but swooped up to the edge of the sleeve. Then when he reaches forward and up the jacket shoulders flatten instead of going even more droop rounded..

"You better stay away from him, he'll rip your lungs out Jim.
Huh, I'd like to meet his tailor. "

These photos are great. Looks like Ron was having a great time. That's how it always should be :)

It's such an amazing experience to see Ron Paul talk. I know when I'm old and talking to my grand children I can say I was right in the middle one of the biggest revolutions in modern time that in many ways reached the entire world. I'll say I got to meet Ron Paul, who will go down as a modern founding father.

Hahaha. I like the Warren Zevon connection. Werewolves of London works for me on a full moon...
