Sen. John McCain stopped in Columbia on Monday afternoon.
The Republican presidential nominee from Arizona landed at the Columbia Regional Airport around 12:30 p.m. As McCain disembarked from the plane, a man yelled, "Go get 'em, John."
McCain shook a few hands and embraced Christine Ellinger, the campaign's fourth congressional district co-chair.
Ellinger said McCain is going to tour Columbia businesses "and get to know people and what they're doing and daily life."
A crowd of about 15 people assembled outside the airport's fence to see him descend from the plane.
Later, in St. Louis, McCain greeted a crowd, estimated to be a bit over 1,000. They were chanting "Sarah, Sarah, SARAH!!"
Meanwhile, in St. Louis:
But the next two weeks will see less importance to these rallies. More important for our future, are down-to-earth GOTV efforts, and keeping an eye on the GOP as they attempt to disrupt this national election way beyond what they've done in the past:
Hacking the Ohio Secretary of State website.
Death threats. More death threats.
Vandalism on huge scales, unchecked by local police.
Watch Ohio, especially, these next two weeks. 2004 was nothing. The GOP will do ANYTHING to keep that state.
And there's always this stuff, too........
