Turnout Low for Political Rally
JEFFERSON CITY - Americans for Prosperity met in Jefferson City this morning and held a rally outside the capitol. The supporters spoke about the problems with big government, but the turnout was minimal. Fewer than 20 supporters showed up for the event.
Kansas director of Americans for Prosperity- Derrick Sontag said the rallies are important for America because it informs citizens about the candidates. "The most important thing is people are educated and understand the failure of these policies."
Ryan Hobbart, communications director of the Missouri Democratic Party said he believes the low turnout is a sign that a majority of Missourians do not feel government is the problem. "There's not a lot of outrage."
Americans for Prosperity is on its way to North Carolina to hold rallies over Labor Day Weekend.
