3000 at Ron Paul rally in SeaTac
An estimated 3000 people attended Republican Presidential hopeful Ron Paul's rally in SeaTac this evening. The rally had an atmosphere more like a rock concert than a Republican rally.

It was also striking that Republican Paul could draw this enthusiastic crowd in King County. The crowd was chanting his name in support. The contrast with the Santorum rally in Tacoma earlier in the week was strong. Santorum's crowd was considerably smaller and the Occupy crowd was disrupting his speech with chants.
The Paul crowd was peppered with volunteers signing the crowd up for email lists and encouraging people to attend the March 3 caucus to vote for Paul. Judging from the size and enthusiasm of the crowd at this rally, Paul should do very well in the King County caucus.
