Mary Ruwart spoke today at 12:30 p.m., local time. After the speech, several people wearing buttons for other candidates — Christine Smith, Root, and Barr — came to Mary’s booth and said they had been converted. They took off their old buttons and replaced them with Mary stickers. One woman was moved to tears and said, “I felt I was in the presence of greatness.”
Another man came to the booth with a question about FEC law. He wanted to make a $2,300 contribution to the campaign immediately, before the nomination, so that he could make an additional $2,300 contribution afterwards, if allowed by law. He made the contribution and asked to be contacted if he could legally give more.
