The walk-out was planned the night before at Whiskey Joe's although every state delegation had different ideas of what to do. I believe it was just supposed to be silent, but people started chanting, "As Maine Goes, So Goes The Nation," and it took off from there. It included a lot more people but some who didn't want to be disruptive tailed off once the chanting started. I'd estimate at its peak, it was about 200-250 people including delegates, alternates, and guests. We walked all the way out of security and had no clue where to go so we just kept walking and chanting picking up and losing people along the way. I navigated us towards a small dive bar called Four Green Fields. It had become the hang out for Texas and other states to meet, drink, and strategize...that and Whiskey Joe's.
I'm in the blue shirt, gold tie, and cowboy hat near Ashley Ryan from Maine, and then later near my friend Jeremy Blosser from Texas. Google and keep an eye out for those two. They are assets to Liberty!
The next day we did a silent walk-in. We told people, "This is not a protest. This is an invest. We are the future.". Then we held the press conference.
