One Person Shows Up to Mark Sanford Rally

Former South Carolina Governor and Congressman Mark Sanford kicked off his primary challenge to President Trump today.

Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Anna Orso, who attended Sanford’s scheduled news conference Wednesday in the shadow of Independence Hall, remarked in her article, “It didn’t really feel like a news conference. I was the only reporter there.”

Orso described the scene as Sanford stepped up to a wooden lectern promptly at 9 am, asking whether she was ready for him to start.

When it began, the only others around besides his two aides were a family 30 yards away with a selfie stick and a group of students from Paris who wanted to know why he had such a big check. (Answer: It represented the burden of the national debt.)

Sanford meant for Wednesday’s news conference to serve not just as the start of his 2020 primary campaign, but also his tour designed to bring attention to the still-rising national debt. His 3,500-mile “Kids, We’re Bankrupt and We Didn’t Even Know It” tour has scheduled stops later this week in Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.

Only one Philedphia affiliate sent a camera crew to cover the speech, even though others have studios conveniently located nearby.
