Only one person shows up at O’Malley event

19630668028_7ce2367a4c_oFormer Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s latest campaign stops in Iowa have been intimate — due to severe winter weather — with one event attracting a single person.

At his last event Monday, the audience of one — a man identified only by his first name, Kenneth — was the only one to brave the snow to see what O’Malley was all about at a stop in Tama, a city with a population of 2,877.

“So we spent the time with him,” O’Malley told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday. Even after the one-on-one with the Democratic presidential hopeful, Kenneth said he was unsure whether he wanted to caucus for O’Malley. O’Malley said Tuesday that the people of Iowa “want to see the whole campaign play out” before deciding on a candidate.

Politico reported New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Marco Rubio, R- Fla., had cancelled campaign stops in Iowa on Monday due to severe weather. Sen. Ted Cruz, R- Texas, called off a “tele-town meeting” with Iowa supporters. O’Malley seemed to be the only candidate on the ground in Iowa through the weekend, while 99 Iowa counties were under National Weather Service storm advisories. O’Malley’s campaign told CNN that events would go forward, snow or no snow.

At a stop in Webster City on Monday, O’Malley chatted with a small group of just five supporters. The Des Moines Register reported the discussion focused on O’Malley’s leadership style during his time as governor of Maryland.

On Sunday, however, O’Malley spoke to a crowd of more than 100 at the Des Moines Social Club — just a day before much of the state was expecting 8 inches of snow.

Real Clear Politics shows O’Malley with 5.7 percent support among Democratic voters in Iowa, based on a 30-day average of all polls.

  • ONLY ONE SUPPORTER SHOWED UP FOR THE O’MALLEY RALLY. BET HE WASN’T IRISH CATHOLIC.

    A TRIBUTE TO HIS ACCUMEN. WAS THE ONE GUY A RELATIVE? STALIN, MAO AND HITLER HAD MORE COMPETITION THAN HITLERY RATMAN CLINTON. THIS IS A JOKE. THE PARTY THAT PLAYS THE RACE CARD BY THE MINUTE HAS BEEN SILENCED BY THE KLINTON KLAN. STAY DOWN BOY. IT’S WHITES ONLY THIS TIME. YOU LATINOS DO AS YOU ARE TOLD BY THE FIRST ABUELA. (GRANDMOTHER)

    PSSST. MUCHACHOS Y MACHACHAS VAMOS LE PARTIE DE LA MUERTE. VAYA CON DIOS Y VAYA CON TE FIESTA. VIVA EL TRUMPO.

    WE ARE GOING TO GO FROM PC DEATH TO ROUNDUPS UNDER THE POSSE COME AND GET US LAW.

    LOOK WE HAVE THIS GOOD THING GOING. Make a few speeches, a couple of quotes, make believe you care. When you get caught stealing use pre written speech 23. I am shocked and appalled. We are looking into this and are forming a committee and the book will be out in November. If by then this hasn’t blown over then we will turn it over to the DOJ Lynch mob. Now I would like to say my favorite Academy award winning line. The envelope please.

    WARNING:EL TRUMPO IS COMING. THE PARTY IS OVER FOR BOTH PARTIES.
